Partnership With Girl Scouts Of The USA

Palo Alto Networks also looked beyond its product portfolio to help solve cybersecurity challenges. The security vendor announced a massive partnership with the Girl Scouts of the USA to create the first-ever national Girl Scout Cybersecurity badges. The badges will help encourage girls from 5 to 18 years old to learn cybersecurity skills. The skills will range from digital safety online to technical cybersecurity skills that could prepare the girls for a career in cybersecurity. The goal of the program, Palo Alto Networks CEO Mark McLaughlin said in a statement, is to bring more women into cybersecurity by introducing them to skills at an early age.

"Our mission to prevent cyberattacks and restore trust in the digital age is only achievable if we make meaningful investments not just in technology but also in people. Our collaboration with Girl Scouts of the USA to develop curriculum for the first-ever national Cybersecurity badges will positively influence the future of our industry by helping build tomorrow's diverse and innovative team of problem solvers equipped to counter emerging cyberthreats," McLaughlin said in a statement.
