Microsoft, in a recent press meet, has stated that it has plans to work with community colleges in the US to fill around 250,000 cybersecurity jobs in the next four years. The tech giant will be providing scholarships to 25,000 students and will also be providing training for the teachers at 150 community colleges. The company will give new study and curriculum materials for free to all colleges.
Microsoft, in recent times, has faced sophisticated hacks, including the SolarWinds attack that US officials and several other hacks in its federal government website hack. To overcome this, US President Joe Biden held a meeting with Microsoft and other big technology companies and discussed improving technology supply chain security.
Microsoft will be quickly training the people to fill the jobs. The company will also continue to innovate and bring new technology solutions to its customers and individuals around the globe like passwordless login, identity management, endpoint security, and much more to protect cyberattacks.
