(TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) As believers in the concept that millennials are further defining the future of cyber defense due to their fresh perspective and creative thought skills, Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, is hosting its fourth annual Summer Family Internship program. This program is designed to allow employee family member interns, “TrendTerns,” the opportunity to receive behind the scenes, real world work experience from a leading cybersecurity company.
The Summer Family Internship program is a six-to-eight week program that equips the student with knowledge of how different pieces of the company, from IT to communications, work together to improve cybersecurity for all. Focusing on not only improving their analytical and management skills, but also practicing the ability to merge and build relationships with people in different roles and departments.
“The Trend Micro Summer Family Internship program is a way for us to develop future industry leaders,” said Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro. “As threats continue to increase, so does the need for cybersecurity professionals. This internship lays the foundation and provides basic knowledge for these students to impact our industry.”
The company’s internship program influences and cultivates a basic knowledge of cybersecurity and interest in a newer generation of young professionals. Throughout their time at Trend Micro, they are provided the opportunity to take on different responsibilities and learn time management skills, all while earning a paycheck. TrendTerns also learn about the tactics, techniques and procedures used to protect valuable information.
“I believe my time at Trend Micro has provided me with opportunities to be a successful businesswoman, said Miranda Patterson, 2017 Summer TrendTern. “I’ve had the experience to develop problem solving skills and have gained knowledge on how to be proactive within a company. This internship has allowed me to build a diverse portfolio of work, which will ultimately lead to creative solutions and opportunities as I continue into my career.”
