New York City officials today announced CyberNYC, a multimillion-dollar initiative to turn the Big Apple into a major cybersecurity destination for technologists, enterpreneurs and job seekers in the coming years.

Plans include the opening of a Global Cyber Center for innovation and the city's first international cybersecurity investment hub, as well as a series of education and training programs.

"Cyber NYC will fuel the next generation of cybersecurity innovation and talent, leveraging one of the world’s greatest threats to create a major economic anchor and up to 10,000 quality middle-class jobs,” said New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) President and CEO James Patchett in a press release. “We’ve convened a world-class roster of partners to help us execute on this essential plan, which will help protect the industries and people that make this city the economic powerhouse that it is today.”
