Major Cybersecurity Center Coming To Baton Rouge

A major cybersecurity center is coming to the Water Campus in Baton Rouge.

Governor John Bel Edwards and Major General Glenn Curtis of the Louisiana National Guard announced plans on Tuesday to establish the capital region's most secure cyber facility.

Governor Edwards declared a statewide cybersecurity emergency in July after ongoing malware attacks impacted several north Louisiana school districts.

In addition to creating new jobs, once fully operational, the Water Campus site will play a key role in responding to civilian cyber attacks upon schools and government institutions, as well as private workplaces.
