Thread regarding IBM layoffs

Google, IBM, tech executives unveil cybersecurity commitments at White House Summit

IBM CEO Arvind Krishna threw his support behind the creation of voluntary public
reporting on cybersecurity practices. The tech giant also committed Wednesday to
training more than 150,000 people in cybersecurity skills within three years.

Let's see how much of this training is offered to current employees vs. "New Collars" and new college hires, as this will help determine the necessary number of RAs.

Any info on how "older" IBMers could be part of these trainings from Google, Microsoft and Apple. ( Let's leave IBM out)?

Most of my new neighbors are in IT. Some are in Supply Chain. They all are from India. The job market seems very rich right now for people with IT skills. Looks like the job market is wide open.

Google, Microsoft and other companies committed investing billions of $ in cybersecurity.

Note that AK committed to training 150k workers in cybersecurity, but no $ amount commitment.
Wonder if this means we’ll just see 150k more IBM Security ‘certificate’ postings on LinkedIn, as required by checkpoint 😀.

Why ADP ?

Maybe they wanted ADT security but there was a typo.

Arvind mentions how the skilling will be delivered in his report... This is not really something meant for current IBMers to reskill.

Notice how the article mentions that Biden "spoke with officials from Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, IBM, and ADP", but look at the URL:

~/biden-cybersecurity-summit-google-apple-microsoft/

It's interesting that only the relevant companies made the shortlist for the URL
