Microsoft Corp., the Redmond, Washington-headquartered American multinational technology company that shifted its core focus to cloud computing instead developing OSs for personal computers back in the 2014s under leadership of Chief Executive Satya Nadella, said in a statement on Thursday that the tech conglomerate would work with community colleges across the US to fill up a gargantuan 250,000 positions in cybersecurity sectors over next four years. Speaking in a press briefing, submissively adding that the latest Microsoft Corp move was largely aimed at preventing hacking threats across the United States by creating an army of cybersecurity experts, a move widely practiced by China’s Pro-CCP-backed Government, Microsoft Corp President Brad Smith said, “Over the next three years, we'll put many tens of millions of dollars behind this effort.
This is an opportunity for us to get started. This is not the ceiling on what we'll do. We clearly need to move quickly to train people to fill what are, frankly, great jobs in our view”. The United States have been grappling with a barrage of hacking attacks over recent past including the SolarWinds hack that was reportedly compromising more than 18,000 public and private entities across the country over nine months without having detected.
