Trend Micro Supports Cybersecurity Curriculum with Educational Grant

DALLAS, Jan. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in security software, has announced a $10,000 donation to the Mission College Center for Innovation and Technology (MC²IT). The grant will provide resources and expertise to advise and help enhance cybersecurity course curriculum. As the security and privacy industry continues to expand and evolve, Trend Micro is committed to encouraging students to enter the cybersecurity field while empowering them with the core competency to do so.

“As part of our responsibility to help keep the world safe for exchanging digital information, Trend Micro is helping MC²IT rebuild existing curriculums while recommending relevant courses,” said Raimund Genes, CTO, Trend Micro. “The addition of these types of courses will help students to become future experts and next generation leaders in cyber security.”

As a member of the MC²IT advisory board, Trend Micro and other security and privacy leaders recognize the challenges presented by a lack of skilled cybersecurity professionals. With the advent of new technology, experts and professionals will need training on how to investigate and manage corresponding threats.

“With the expertise and knowledge that Trend Micro and the security advisory board bring to MC²IT, we can bridge the gap between technology and education,” said Daniel Peck, president, Mission College. “We have the right people collaborating, bringing their passion to the security profession to motivate students and others interested in learning more about technology careers.”
