Our story begins...
The US Army created what would become US Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) in 2010 to begin the development of new age cyberwarriors. It was clear a location for a unified headquarters was needed and most current spaces were full at existing federal facilities near.
With room for growth, Augusta, Ga's Fort Gordon became the primary target. Fort Gordon was already home to the Army's Signal Center of Excellence housing the Signal School and NSA-Georgia.
Army Cyber Command
In 2014, it was announced that US Army Cyber Command, the Army Cyber Center of Excellence and a portion of the Army's Intelligence and Security Command would be relocating to Fort Gordon in Augusta, GA. With $1.6 billion in new construction underway through 2028, the new command will bring over 17,000 new military personnel, civilians, contractors and family members to the greater Augusta region.
Fort Gordon's main mission is to serve as the home of Army Cyber Command and the Joint Forces Headquarters for Cyber. This includes serving as the home for the Cyber Center of Excellence and its Cyber school and Signal school. Components of Army Intelligence and Security Command as well as NSA-Georgia are located on post, along with operations units from the Navy, the Air Force, the Marines and reserve and national guard units. The Fort is also home to Eisenhower Army Medical Center. The command structure includes one three-star general, one two-star general and five one-star generals.
With more than $1.6 billion slated for construction, Fort Gordon now hosts the largest military construction program in the continental United States and is scheduled for completion in 2028. During the next few years, 25 individual projects will comprise a multi-year facilities modernization plan. The largest single piece of the project, the Cyber Center of Excellence (above), has an estimated value of $934 million upon its completion.

Alliance for CyberSecurity Education
Recognizing the workforce demand that Army Cyber would bring to the Augusta region, the community has launched the Alliance for CyberSecurity Education (ACE). This is an education partnership between regional universities, technical colleges, chambers, K-12 school systems and Fort Gordon to develop education tracks for both youth and adults and prepare them for work in cybersecurity jobs. Efforts have seen regional cybersecurity program graduates increase by nearly 200% over five years.
The Georgia Cyber Center
The Georgia Cyber Center is a unique public/private collaboration among academia, state, federal and local government, law enforcement, the U.S. Army and the private sector. With two adjacent buildings totaling 332,000 square feet, the Georgia Cyber Center, located on the Nathan Deal Campus for Innovation in Augusta, is designed to meet the growing need for cybersecurity talent in Georgia, the nation and across the globe.
