AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- A cyber consulting company is expected to bring 50 jobs to Georgia as part of a contract to provide training to the Army.
Gov. Nathan Deal's office said in a news release that BurningCastle LLC has been awarded an Army contract to provide information technology and logistics training at Fort Gordon in Augusta.
The Army post was recently designated the new home of the Army's Cyber Command.
Deal said BurningCastle will be "a valued component of the `cyber corridor"' developing between Atlanta and Augusta, where the Georgia Cyber Center opened earlier this year.
BurningCastle began hiring for the new Georgia positions in September and is expected to continue through March.
The consulting company is based in Rosslyn, Virginia.
