BechtelLogo (1)Bechtel has launched a recruitment and training program to help early-career information technology professionals learn to secure cyber infrastructures.

The company said Monday that it will collaborate with the Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National Laboratories to support multi-year employment for young cyber experts.
