We use this space to highlight corporate responsibility news, opinions, and insights from stakeholders both internal and external to Symantec. In an effort to include an even broader array of viewpoints, we're launching a new feature of the CR in Action blog. From time to time we will highlight recent articles from our favorite CR blogs and media sources.
Part of the mission of our CR in Action blog is to educate our readers on the issues that are central to Symantec's CR program – cybersecurity, environmental stewardship and climate change, diversity, human rights and employee development. We couldn't think of a better way than sharing up to date news and information from some of our favorite sources.
