Knowmadics is pleased to announce we have partnered with Groover Labs to launch the Cyber Center of Excellence (CCoE) for national cybersecurity initiatives out of Groover Labs’ 42,000 square-foot-facility in downtown Wichita, Kansas. In an article published by businesswire, Claire Ostrum, President of Knowmadics, said: “With its commitment to creating infrastructure and developing local talent, we are proud to partner with Groover Labs’ leadership to take part in ‘Building a Stronger Economy’ in Kansas. Our passion for technology growth, and the ability to maximize the valuable human capital resources found in Kansas, align perfectly with Groover Labs’ location, capabilities, philosophy, passion and environment. We are looking forward to calling Kansas the ‘home’ of our Cyber Center of Excellence.”
With the build-out of the Groover Labs CyberLink, Knowmadics will commit to the CCoE operations by becoming its anchor member/user. With this move, Knowmadics will extensively engage with local and national private sector companies, universities, military and Homeland Security communities.
Knowmadics will also create high-quality jobs and recruit from local universities, to take advantage of the local talent pool. Through a previously announced partnership program with Friends University in Wichita, Knowmadics has already started this outreach by working toward the establishment of a collaborative cyber lab academic curriculum, including potential internship opportunities.
The ultimate goal is to recruit and retain technology professionals in the greater Wichita region, for which the Groover Labs CyberLink infrastructure expansion and center will play an instrumental role.
