The National Security Agency unveiled plans to build a one million square feet, $1.5 billion cybersecurity data center in the Utah salt flats near Salt Lake City. The center, which will house the highly-classified Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative designed during the Bush years, was announced by Glenn Gaffney, NSA's deputy director of national intelligence for collection, at the Utah state capitol. Utah Governor Gary Herbert and Sens. Orrin Hatch, (R-Utah), and Robert Bennett, (R-Utah) joined him. The center, which will employ between 100 and 200 people when fully operational, will provide "critical support to national cybersecurity priorities," according to the NSA, which would not disclose further details.
