SAN ANTONIO – May 2, 2018 – Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception at its new San Antonio Cyber Center. Congressman Will Hurd, 23rd District of Texas, and state and local community leaders were special guests for the celebration.
The new facility is 7,700 square feet situated at 903 Billy Mitchell Blvd. on the Port San Antonio campus. The Cyber Center will host a cyber integration lab, as well as meeting space, a user experience capability to enhance process improvements and workflow, warehouse space and production facilities. The new space is a tangible reflection of Northrop Grumman’s cyber professionals’ ongoing efforts to secure our nation’s critical systems, solve complex challenges and support full-spectrum cyber operations.
“Cybersecurity is at the forefront of national security today, and Texas is rapidly becoming the hub for this critical sector as companies like Northrop Grumman expand their presence in the Lone Star State,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “Our high-quality workforce, top-tier universities, and support for government customers and the 24th Air Force Cyber Command make Texas the ideal location for fostering the growth of the cyber security sector. I thank Northrop Grumman for their investment, and welcome their world class cyber operations center of excellence in San Antonio.”
“With the presence of the 24th and 25th Air Force, National Guard Cyber Protection teams, and top-notch cybersecurity education programs at the University of Texas at San Antonio and Texas A&M University-San Antonio, there’s no question that San Antonio is quickly becoming Cyber City, USA,” said U.S. Representative Will Hurd, a former undercover CIA officer and cybersecurity expert. “Northrop Grumman’s selection of San Antonio for their new cyber center will certainly foster continued technological innovation and job growth in my hometown.”
“We are honored to have our new cyber facility in San Antonio. We know the work done in this building will help strengthen our partnership with the Air Force ensuring long-term mission success. The location also allows us to grow our existing presence with the San Antonio community. This region offers an exceptional talent pool and opportunities for partnership as a global leader in cybersecurity,” said Linnie Haynesworth, vice president and general manager, cyber and intelligence mission solutions division, Northrop Grumman Mission Systems.
