(TNS) — Aiken could soon become a cybersecurity pioneer for South Carolina and serve as a springboard into broader cyberdefense fields and missions, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Brad Owens said Friday morning at Newberry Hall.

The construction and eventual operation of the DreamPort Cybersecurity Collaborative at USC Aiken – a partnership between the local university, the Savannah River National Laboratory and the S.C. National Guard – will help tie things together, he said. Separately, it will lure business to the county.

"We know about the world-class cyberenterprise throughout South Carolina, we just hadn't been able to connect all the dots," said Owens, the S.C. National Guard director of joint staff, speaking at the Greater Aiken Chamber of Commerce's First Friday breakfast. "And so I want Aiken to be the portal. I want Aiken to be the gateway into that cyberenterprise."
