SAIC (NYSE: SAI) is set to open its new Cyber Innovation Center (CIC) in Columbia, Md.
A host of notable attendees will be participating in the celebration, including Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Gov. Martin O’Malley, along with SAIC CEO Walt Havenstein and Senior Vice President Larry Cox.
The CIC is located at 6841 Benjamin Franklin Dr. in Columbia.
The new center will help the firm deliver an enhanced cyber product to customers.
“The new CIC at SAIC is a true investment in the future of our workforce, ” O’Malley said. “Cybersecurity, computer systems design, and all the high tech, high potential sectors of our economy are all connected to our goals for creating, saving, and placing Marylanders in quality jobs. The innovation and exchange of ideas that happen here will help us identify threats such as identity theft, network viruses, loss of sensitive information and other malicious activity that are part of the ever-evolving world of cyber information and communications.”
While the facility is accessible to Washington-area commuters, it will also be available to telecommuting employees.
“The CIC offers an environment where the comprehensive knowledge of SAIC’s workforce is brought to bear upon the challenge at hand, ” Cox said. “We look forward to leveraging this valuable new resource as we continue to grow our presence in Maryland.”
