SAIC today announced the grand opening of its Cyber Innovation Center in  Columbia, Md., with a ceremony kicked off by Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Gov. Martin O’Malley and SAIC CEO Walt Havenstein and Senior Vice President Larry Cox.

“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.”

Located along the I-95 corridor, the center is remotely available to SAIC employees throughout the United States.

“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.”

The center has a technical-solutions lab and secured infrastructure aimed to help SAIC develop and deliver innovative cybersecurity solutions to customers. Other features of the center include a research and development, and training and conference spaces, as well as demonstration, prototyping and proposal solution support areas.

“The opening of the Cyber Innovation Center is good news for three reasons: jobs, jobs and more jobs for Maryland, jobs that keep the country safe and keep the economy strong,” Mikulski said. “To keep our state competitive in the global economy, we have to create and support Maryland’s jobs of the future, like the innovative cybersecurity jobs at SAIC. Maryland’s unique federal facilities make it the epicenter of cyber security innovation, and I’m so proud that Columbia was chosen to house this important new cyber technology incubator and educational center.”
