New Army Cyber Command Headquarters to Open in Georgia

December 9, 2016

Military officials at Fort Gordon in east Georgia have broken ground for the future headquarters of the U.S. Army’s cyber operations.

Lt. Gen. Paul Nakasone, commanding general of U.S. Army Cyber Command and Second Army, said the recent groundbreaking is a milestone toward the goals of “greater readiness, resilience and strength for Army cyber operations.”

Nakasone said at a ceremony last week that the groundbreaking represents a turning point in the nation’s ability “to project power in cyberspace.”

In 2009, the Department of Defense declared cyberspace a new domain of warfare after growing concerns about cybersecurity and an increase in cyber threats.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that the Army decided in late 2013 to build its new cyber command headquarters alongside National Security Agency-Georgia’s facilities at Fort Gordon.
