Palo Alto Networks and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) have partnered to educate hundreds of thousands of girls in grades K–12 about cybersecurity through newly developed Cyber Security badges. This national effort is a huge step toward eliminating traditional barriers to technology industry access, such as gender and geography. The programming will target girls as young as five years old, helping ensure that even the youngest girls have a foundation primed for future life and career success.
Thanks to the multiyear partnership with Palo Alto Networks, the badges will deepen the existing commitment that Girl Scouts has made to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by using the organization’s unique, hands-on curriculum, which inspires girls to embrace and celebrate scientific discovery in their lives at all ages.
