We previously commended the Girl Scouts of the United States for encouraging girls to get involved in STEM, including cybersecurity by issuing a cybersecurity patch.

The Girl Scouts announced that it has partnered with the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to develop a new patch that girl scouts will be able to obtain if they successfully complete Cyber Squad, a game that is designed to educate girls aged 9-11 years about privacy, security, online activities and cyberbullying. The goal is for the scouts to “navigate online as smart, cautious consumers protecting their identity, their data and their safety.”

Go Girl Scouts and HPE—sounds like a great idea!
