Booz Allen Hamilton Opens Innovation Hub in Annapolis Junction, Maryland
The 15,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility is designed to support premier cyber organizations including the National Security Agency (NSA), U.S. Cyber Command, and U.S. military cyber operations, as well as ongoing learning and development within the cyber community.
The Central Maryland iHub will also serve as the headquarters for Booz Allen’s Dark Labs team, an elite group of security researchers, penetration testers, reverse engineers, network analysts, and data scientists dedicated to stopping cyber-attacks before they occur.
According to company officials, iHubs are designed to create pivotal connections between companies, technologies, and talent to help solve some of the country’s most complex challenges. The CMD iHub will be an open collaborative workspace to further capability development and enhance employee engagement.
“This space is designed to bring people together,” said James Allen, Executive Vice President at Booz Allen. “The nature of the cybersecurity mission often means that they are often behind closed doors, unable to engage in the conversations and collaboration that can fuel and accelerate their work, professional development, and personal passions. This iHub will help enrich and diversify the experience of cyber professionals at all stages of their career by providing a space to share, grow, and collaborate.”
The CMD iHub, located on the first floor of Booz Allen’s 304 Sentinel Drive office, is the sixth in Booz Allen’s iHub Network, joining locations in Austin, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington. In addition to creating room for new employees, the space will regularly host speakers, classes, workshops, social events, and more.
“With this iHub, we are breaking down barriers in cyber and investing in the future of our talent,” added Allen. “Our work in Central Maryland and the clients we serve there are essential to protecting our national security, making it even more crucial to create an environment that accelerates our experts’ ability to develop cutting edge solutions and technologies. This location will accelerate innovation, giving employees an opportunity to work hand in hand with our clients and partners while also providing a place for exploration and imagination. It’s a high-performance space for people working on a special mission.”
