Welcome to the world of cybersecurity! We use computers every day to send emails, watch videos,and shop online. Computers are also a part of our lives in many other ways that aren’t as easy to see. Computers power up skyscrapers and streetlights, keep air conditioners and security systems humming, run medical devices in hospitals, control cars and planes, and much more.
Cybersecurity is the way we protect all those computers—
and ourselves—from crime. When you’ve earned these three badges, you’ll know the basics of cybersecurity, what privacy means, and how to protect yourself when you’re on a computer.
This badge is one of three Cybersecurity badges for Brownies. Information about earning these badges can be found in the Year Plans on the Volunteer Toolkit.
Girl Scout badges, awards, and other insignia that are earned for the accomplishment of skill building activities or any set requirements should be presented, worn, or displayed only after Girl Scouts have completed the requirements outlined in the appropriate program materials.
