October 18, 2018
October 18, 2018: Cybersecurity Ventures announced that Sylvia Acevedo, the CEO for the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), has been named its 2018 Cybersecurity Person Of The Year.
"Sylvia Acevedo is a catalyst for the most important initiative we've witnessed in the cybersecurity industry over the past year," says Steve Morgan, founder and Editor-In-Chief at Cybersecurity Ventures. "She has a vision and passion for teaching STEM and cybersecurity skills to a huge corps of young girls, many of whom will become our world's future cyber-fighters."
Given a worldwide deficit of 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs expected by 2021, up from 1 million in 2014, the Girl Scouts have the potential to produce more future cybersecurity students and workers than any other organization globally.
