Cyber

Home to the headquarters of the U.S. Air Force’s National Air & Space Intelligence Center (NASIC), the predictive intelligence American leaders need to lead the nation’s cyber fight takes shape in the Dayton Region. NASIC, an innovator of information and data exploitation, generates the intelligence that guides the Air Force’s development of new combat systems, increases the safety of our military operations, and defines foreign threats for our leaders.

NASIC traces its history back to Dayton’s historic McCook Field, where some of the first military aircraft took flight under the watchful eye of Orville Wright. The Dayton Region’s legacy of IT innovation goes back to products that have transformed our day-to-day lives. From improving workflow with car dealerships and risk solutions agencies to big data analytics and research, the business of IT is booming in Dayton.

Leading the Way With Analytics and Cyber Security

Cyber security solutions that collect and protect data are part of the work that the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base brings to market. Along with the great work being done at the Base, other firms, such as the Advanced Technical Intelligence Center, are bringing security technology to market through such products as their training solution in Cyber Analysis Data Security.

The National Air and Space Intelligence Center at Wright-Patt creates integrated, predictive intelligence in the air, space, and cyberspace domains enabling military operations, force modernization, and policymaking, Cyber Security and intelligence-gathering.

Modeling and Simulation Leadership

Thanks to a critical Defense and Aerospace marketplace in the region, Dayton is a world leader in data set modeling and simulation technologies, often critical tools in advanced manufacturing and other industries. Taking on the toughest and most complex technology challenges that companies can face is what Sierra Nevada Corporation does best, especially for applications in threat detection and security, and infrastructure protection. Taken all together, it’s no wonder that Dayton has drawn so many IT, software and cyber security businesses here.

From Beta Tests to Advanced Data Management

Probably the best beta test happened right here in Dayton when Orville and Wilbur Wright decided to design a flying machine in their Wright Cycle Company. It’s that desire to try new and exciting technology that has helped companies find success with advanced data management solutions and services.

The area is home to nearly 600 IT & Services firms that leverage the know-how and strong skills of over 13,000 employees. Multiple colleges, universities and vocational training programs graduate thousands of STEM-focused students a year who are ready to help your technology business succeed.

The Dayton Region hosts the world’s leading Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing, translating information to meaning. Dayton continues to advance in national rankings for STEM leadership, ranking 5th in the latest Business Facilities Magazine. We also host the highest concentration of IT professionals in the state.

Growing the Cyber Workforce

With the highest concentration of IT professionals in the state, it should be no surprise that Forbes Magazine ranked Dayton as a top 10 community for engineering jobs, 4th in the nation for engineers per capita, and Business Facilities Magazine ranked Dayton 5th among STEM Leaders.

More than 50 colleges, half with STEM designations, produce more than 2,000 STEM degree graduates each year. As one of five national grant recipients, the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) will address the nation’s shortage of skilled cybersecurity employees through the Regional Alliances and Multistakeholder Partnerships to Stimulate (RAMPS) Cybersecurity Education and Workforce Development.

The Ohio Cyber Collaboration Consortium (OC3) uses the Ohio Academic Research Network (OARNet) to support cyber education and provide an environment for public and private entities to test and measure the performance of cyber-physical systems. OC3 is also developing a Cyber Emergency Response Team can be mobilized to halt a cyber attack, recover and restore operations and prevent similar attacks from occurring.
