* Cyber Security is now a Girl Scout Merit Badge

TechViews News   …..

The Girl Scouts have come a long way since making clothes for dolls. With today’s emphasis on technical security and computing skills, the Girl Scouts now offer a Merit Badge in Cyber Security.

The Boy Scouts have already offered a series of Merit Badges on various skills related to computing. Now the Girl Scouts have joined the ranks to teaching our kids the importance of protecting themselves online.

Starting next year, they will now have an opportunity to earn a badge in cyber security. The new badge will be available to participants from kindergarten all the way through 12th grade. The cyber education program will encourage girls to pursue a career in cyber security. Members will learn about data privacy, cyber bullying, and how to protect themselves online.

This is one of the best releases of news for training our youth that has come along in a long time. If you have children in Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, please encourage and support them to achieve these Merit Badges.

It’s important for their future and ours.
