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 (CMD) 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.

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.”
