GE will establish an Information Security Technology Center in Henrico County, Virginia, creating about 200 cyber security-focused jobs.
"Ensuring the security of GE's and our customers' data is, and always will be, a top priority," said Charlene Begley, president and CEO of GE Home & Business Solutions and senior vice president and CIO for GE. "The information technologists working at this center will help GE develop and deploy innovative technologies to make our businesses even more productive and secure. Virginia has a wealth of technical talent and strong educational facilities which will be key in filling these IT security jobs."
The Virginia Department of Business Assistance (VDBA) will provide funding and services to support the company's recruitment and training activities through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
