New Cybersecurity Lab Opens in Columbia, MD

Although thousands of people driving on Interstate 95 daily pass the big "SAIC" letters on a Columbia office building, few get inside to see a slice of one of the newest, fastest-growing fields: developing new techniques for blocking electronic attacks on U.S. defense and commercial interests.

The ceremonial opening Monday of a Cyber Innovation Center at Science Applications International Corp. in Columbia's Gateway Business Park offered a brief glimpse.

The firm employs about 500 people in the year-old building just west of the highway, according to Senior Vice President Larry Cox, but the national Cyber Command to be built at Fort Meade will occupy an estimated 5.8 million-square-foot complex, according to officials, making it a much larger presence and bringing far more new jobs to the area than the federal defense job transfers connected to the base relocation program will.
