SHREVEPORT (KTAL) -- U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-La.) today announced that Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) will be opening an Integrated Technology Center at the Cyber Innovation Center (CIC) in the National Cyber Research Park (NCRP) in Bossier City, Louisiana.
“We’re fortunate the Cyber Innovation Center calls Bossier City home, and the addition of CSC will be a boon for the northwest Louisiana economy, creating 800 computer science jobs within the next four years,” Vitter said. “I think the brightest part of this huge announcement is the IT sector jobs being created, which will provide high-level jobs for our college graduates. This CSC contract is a great step toward moving Louisiana forward in a growing field.”
Vitter has been aggressively pushing a number of priorities to boost Louisiana’s cyber footprint and capabilities, including amendments into the annual National Defense Authorization Act.
The CIC is a non-profit corporation operating out of the NCRP that focuses on developing the knowledge-based workforce in northwest Louisiana.
