The Washington Center partners with Tentacle

The Washington Center’s Cybersecurity Accelerator Program is designed, built and implemented to deliver solutions for both learners and employers. Creating access, equity and opportunities for learners to gain skills and networks can open a career in this industry and, in turn, expand the pool of diverse and eager talent that will fuel innovations and combat the challenges of the future. 

Tentacle, an innovative SaaS-based information security platform, is one of several employer partners to step up to actively change the systemic talent recruitment process in cybersecurity. By hosting a virtual micro-intern, they are helping to expand their own talent pipeline, while giving short, stackable and rewarding professional experience and insights to a learner. Learn more about Tentacle’s experience in the Cybersecurity Accelerator Program and how participating supports their operational and equity visions. 

Thank you to Tentacle and all our partners who are helping to create a stronger, smarter and more inclusive future of cybersecurity talent.
