They’re teaming up to help young girls learn computer science.

The curriculum will range from privacy to coding and ethical hacking.

“We know we need diverse groups of people to go and get the talent in cybersecurity and the Girl Scouts has millions of girls so why not partner with them,” said Rinki Sethi of the Palo Alto Networks.
