FREDERICTON (GNB) – Global Intelligence, a cyberforensics company, will expand its operations in Fredericton and create up to five new jobs with support from the provincial government.
“Global Intelligence joins an ever-growing list of innovative companies who want to be part of this province’s leading cybersecurity ecosystem,” said deputy premier Stephen Horsman. “Your government identified cybersecurity as a priority sector in the New Brunswick Economic Growth Plan, and we have been seeing some fantastic results.”
The company uses its own technology to help police, intelligence agencies, governments and businesses identify and track threats online.
“Because of the nature of our business, it is incredibly important that we locate ourselves in a community where cybersecurity work has a strong network of support,” said company founder and chief technology officer, Adam W. Mosher. “This expansion will help Global Intelligence Inc. to continue to ramp-up our operations and meet the needs of our growing list of clients in law enforcement and elsewhere. We would like to thank Opportunities NB, and their team at Cyber NB, for seeing the potential in what we are offering.”
To support the company’s expansion, Global Intelligence is eligible for an investment of $115,000 from Opportunities NB, which is a Crown corporation that seeks to attract and support opportunities to grow the economy and create jobs. It provides support services for businesses across the province.
The investment comes in the form of payroll support, which helps a company create small quantities of jobs in the early stages of its growth by providing salary assistance within the first year of a new round of hiring.
It is estimated that creating up to five jobs would contribute $843,969 annually to the province’s GDP and generate $46,245 in provincial taxes each year.16-07-18
