Symantec Cyber Career Connection(SC3)
In June of 2014, at the Clinton Global Initiative America in Denver, the new Symantec Cyber Career Connection (SC3) was announced. The program combines Symantec’s commitment to serving young adults and their expertise in cybersecurity with NPower’s proven model for training and placing underserved young adults in career opportunities.
Just announced in 2015, NPower has expanded our Symantec Cyber Security Program to reach veterans in North Texas in addition to young adults in New York City.
“Each graduate will help fill the IT security field talent gap and ensure a wider range of young adults have the opportunity to become future cybersecurity leaders.” --Stephanie Cuskley, CEO, NPower
