High-tech guru pursues vision to turn Ybor into a cybersecurity hub | Tampa Bay Times

From an office undergoing renovation on the second floor of an old Ybor City hotel, a high-tech visionary is on a mission: Turn the historic Tampa district into a cybersecurity hub and cash in on a growing industry that’s projected to be worth more than $1 trillion by 2025.

This mission even has a name, combining the location with the concept — Cybor.

“It’s like an economic development council for cyber,” said Adam Sheffield, 31, an Army veteran and cybersecurity guru who came up with the Cybor name and concept.
