The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is playing a key role in helping DoD and DHS increase our Nation’s cybersecurity. Our engineering, design and construction skills are helping build the important facilities that are needed to get the job done.
On Thursday, we began construction of a new $1.5 billion cybersecurity center at Camp Williams, Utah, which includes more than 100,000 square feet of computer space to help protect against cyber attacks. Not only will this facility help our Nation’s cybersecurity efforts, but it will also help energize the economy in an around Camp Williams by creating thousands of construction jobs and employ between 100 and 200 people once complete. In addition, we’re working hard to incorporate key sustainability elements to help reduce the facility’s impact to the environment.
Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, and it will require the efforts of all of us to help keep our Nation’s critical infrastructure secure, resilient and built to last. We can be proud to be a part of the cyber revolution.
