TASC has opened a new facility in San Antonio, Texas to test cybersecurity offerings intended to help government customers protect their infrastructures from cyber attacks.
The facility houses a 70-person training center for TASC professionals to earn certifications and a cybersecurity laboratory for more than 100 scientists and engineers, TASC said Wednesday.
“San Antonio has been a major base of operations for TASC since we first opened our doors here in 1996,” says Rick Wagner, senior vice president of TASC’s defense group.
“Our investment in these facilities is just one example of the continued investments we make to meet the evolving challenges our customers face,” Wagner said.
Shane Curtis, TASC regional director in San Antonio, said the laboratory is a virtual environment for company personnel to test network architecture vulnerabilities and develop cybersecurity offerings for civilian, defense and intelligence systems.
“Protecting critical infrastructure systems such as power and water from cyber-attacks is a high priority for our nation’s cities,” said Curtis.
TASC is developing a measure intended to test control systems in a closed environment with no impact on normal operations.
More than 100 TASC scientists and engineers in San Antonio work with government customers such as the U.S. Air Force in cybersecurity, bio-sciences and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).
