Cyber

The Dayton Region knows information technology (IT) drives important actions and decisions across all industries. Many innovative IT products have come from the Dayton Region and transformed our everyday lives. From improving workflow with car dealerships and risk solutions agencies to big data analytics and research, the business of IT is booming in Dayton.

The area is home to nearly 600 IT and services firms that leverage the know-how and strong skills of more than 13,000 employees. Multiple colleges, universities and vocational training programs graduate thousands of STEM-focused students annually who are ready to help your technology business succeed

From Beta Tests to Advanced Data Management

Probably the best beta test happened right here in Dayton when Orville and Wilbur Wright decided to design a flying machine in their Wright Cycle Company. It’s that desire to try new and exciting technology that has helped companies such as Teradata be so successful with advanced data management solutions and services.

The Dayton Region hosts the world’s leading center of excellence in knowledge-enabled computing, translating information to meaning. Dayton continues to advance in national rankings for STEM leadership, ranking fifth (per Business Facilities Magazine). We also host the highest concentration of IT professionals in the state.

Leading the Way With Analytics and Cyber Security

With the explosion of social media, Dayton companies are leading the way by analyzing trends and discussions to provide predictive analytics of hot and relevant topics.

Cyber security solutions that collect and protect data are part of the work that the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base bring to market. Along with the great work being done at the base, other firms, such as the Advanced Technical Intelligence Center, are bringing security technology to market through such products as their training solution in cyber analysis data security.

The National Air and Space Intelligence Center at Wright-Patt creates integrated, predictive intelligence in the air, space and cyberspace domains, enabling military operations, force modernization and policymaking, cyber security and intelligence gathering.

Modeling and Simulation Leadership

Thanks to a critical Defense and Aerospace marketplace in the region, Dayton is a world leader in data set modeling and simulation technologies, often critical tools in advanced manufacturing and other industries. Taking on the toughest and most complex technology challenges that companies can face is what Sierra Nevada Corporation does best, especially for applications in threat detection and security, and infrastructure protection. Taken all together, it’s no wonder that Dayton has drawn so many IT, software and cyber security businesses here.

Growing the Cyber Workforce

With the highest concentration of IT professionals in the state, it should be no surprise that Forbes Magazine ranked Dayton as a top 10 community for engineering jobs, 4th in the nation for engineers per capita, and Business Facilities Magazine ranked Dayton 5th among STEM Leaders.

More than 50 colleges, half with STEM designations, produce more than 2,000 STEM degree graduates each year. As one of five national grant recipients, the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) will address the nation’s shortage of skilled cybersecurity employees through the Regional Alliances and Multistakeholder Partnerships to Stimulate (RAMPS) Cybersecurity Education and Workforce Development.

The Ohio Cyber Collaboration Consortium (OC3) uses the Ohio Academic Research Network (OARNet) to support cyber education and provide an environment for public and private entities to test and measure the performance of cyber-physical systems. OC3 is also developing a Cyber Emergency Response Team can be mobilized to halt a cyber attack, recover and restore operations and prevent similar attacks from occurring.
