Investment group signs deal to train cyber-security professionals

The investment group renovating Augusta’s historic Sibley Mill into a high-tech mixed-use development said Tuesday it has signed a deal with a Maryland-based institute to train future cybersecurity professionals there as early as next year.

Cape Augusta LLC, the company redeveloping the 136-year-old textile mill into a urban tech hub called Augusta Cyberworks, said it has formed a joint venture with UMBC Training Centers LLC to educate up to 200 cyber professionals a year.
