Girl Scouts of the USA
Palo Alto Networks and GSUSA are introducing cybersecurity education to millions of girls across the United States through compelling programming designed to increase their interest and instill in them a valuable 21st century skillset. This national effort is a huge step toward eliminating traditional barriers to industry access, and will target girls as young as five years old, helping to ensure that even the youngest girls have a foundation primed for future life and career success.
