SAIC to open centre in Victoria
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has announced it will establish a regional cyber security centre in Victoria, generating 50 new highly skilled jobs over the next three years.
Headquartered in the US, the company currently employs 41,000 people globally and is broadly considered a world-leading scientific, engineering and technology applications company.
"The centre will provide a collaborative space for SAIC researchers to develop hardware and software to protect information and critical infrastructure from cyber attacks," State Minister for Manufacturing, Exports and Trade Richard Dalla-Riva said.

"Attracting a global company like SAIC to Victoria, and commitment to 50 new jobs, is a vote of confidence in our state's ability to compete on a global scale."
SAIC's Melbourne R&D centre will enable the company to better support its efforts for Australian Government and industry clients, while focusing on new initiatives and opportunities around the National Broadband Network (NBN).
SAIC's researchers in the Melbourne R&D centre will conduct advanced research in data mining and analysis systems, as well as development of software applications associated with CloudShield Technologies, Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAIC, and TeraText® product lines.
