SAN DIEGO’S UNIQUE COMPETITIVE POSITION
San Diego is especially well-positioned to benefit from this trend, with both a critical mass of firms and a solid economic foundation on which to grow. The region is already home to large market leaders in cybersecurity solutions such as ESET and Sentek Global. For more than two decades, the region has been a leader in data analytics and encryption technologies.
San Diego has a strong cyber workforce and a strong workforce pipeline. The region is home to more than 40,000 IT workers. The region’s universities and colleges graduate several thousand computer scientists, computer engineers, and other IT workers with the skills to enhance cybersecurity.
