The Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) currently manages the delivery of IT infrastructure services to 85 Executive Branch agencies in Georgia and managed network services to 1,300 state and local government entities. In addition, GTA has been tasked with overseeing the construction and development of the $60 million Hull McKnight Georgia Cyber Center for Innovation and Training, which broke ground in Augusta, Georgia in June 2017 and is set to be completed in July 2018.
The Georgia Cyber Center aims to enhance cyber security in both government and private sectors and will serve as an incubator for cybersecurity startup companies. It is the single largest investment in a cybersecurity center in the nation. The building will host government, private and educational organizations, bringing all together for collaboration and a shared view of cyber threats. The facility is being developed in partnership with Augusta University.
GTA determined that a logo is needed for the center, and that logo will be included on the building façade as well as on all branded collateral materials and online via a website and social media platforms. The logo will need to be designed to optimize all of its uses.
