If you have a daughter in K-12 who is in the Girl Scouts, check out the fact that they can now earn cybersecurity badges if they demonstrate a mastery of Internet security. Brilliant! What a great way to get girls interested in cybersecurity and provide them with a hot career path at the same time.
The Girl Scouts has announced that in collaboration with Palo Alto Networks, it is now offering cybersecurity badges for youngsters in training to become white hat hackers. They can earn 18 new badges, offered from daisies to ambassadors, which will include hackathons.
One of my missions is to get more women in cybersecurity. This is right on target.
I love this—both to encourage girls to enter a male dominated field and also to give girls tools to protect themselves online. A win-win.
