CISA and Girl Scouts of the USA Join Forces to Bridge the Gender Gap in Cybersecurity

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has announced a partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) to close the gender gap in cybersecurity. According to a recent report by Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS) and Cybersecurity Ventures, women make up only 25% of the global cybersecurity workforce. To combat this, CISA and GSUSA are working together to foster an interest in cybersecurity among young girls as early as grade school.

The MOU builds on CISA’s work to ensure the cybersecurity industry reflects the diversity of America.
