Lockheed Martin, which already has cyber security centers in the US and UK, has announced plans to build one in Canberra, Australia.

"Its NextGen Cyber Innovation and Technology Centre (NCITE) is now under construction, and will comprise 900 square meters of floor space," writes The Register's Richard Chirgwin. "Due for its official opening in March 2012, Lockheed Martin says the facility will eventually employ 200 staff."

"The company says the system will run three private clouds and one public cloud, and will be secure to Australia’s 'secret' classification level," Chirgwin writes.
