The 14,000 square foot facility is the latest addition to EY’s collection of cybersecurity centers. As well as serving as a home for EY’s team of cybersecurity managed services analysts, the new center will also host EY’s Cyber Academy and help facilitate collaboration between clients, EY specialists and EY technology alliances, allowing organizations to test innovations and approaches within real-world environments.

Some additional features of the new center will include a 24/7 operations center so the team can manage client environments, a cyber innovation center, and an executive briefing center.

“Our new cyber center will allow us to walk clients through the entire lifecycle of the EY cybersecurity experience, including the design, creation and implementation of innovative solutions,” said Chad Holmes, Principal at EY & EY Americas Chief Technology, Innovation and Strategy Officer for the EY cybersecurity practice.

“It will also be a testing ground for new approaches and technology, and a hub for learning, where we can both train our next generation of cyber professionals and help client teams achieve key certifications,” he said.
