Cyber Security School to Move into Home of Enigma Codebreakers

Cyber Security School to Move into Home of Enigma Codebreakers

Bletchley Park, formerly home to the Enigma codebreakers, will house the first National College of Cyber Security in the UK.

In World War II, Alan Turing, along with computer scientists team, managed to break the Nazis’ system. The feat is largely considered to be the main turning point in the Allied Victory.

A number of youngsters in the UK will now be granted the opportunity to make their mark on cyber security. The college, currently being developed by new cyber security organisation, Qufaro, will launch in 2018 after a £5m building restoration on the site has been completed.

Chair of the Institute of Information Security Professionals and Qufaro, Alastair MacWilson, said:

“Our cyber education and innovation landscape is complex, disconnected and incomplete putting us at risk of losing a whole generation of critical talent. For those interested in forging a career in cyber, the current pathway is filled with excellent but disparate initiatives – each playing a vital role without offering a truly unified ecosystem of learning and support.”

The school will only select the most skilled and talented students and is set to combine modules in contemporary subjects such as physics, maths, and computer science with its syllabus.

To entice those looking for a change in career, there will be a new selection of web-based courses planned.

If future generations are half as skilled as the Enigma codebreakers, the future for cyber defence in this country is looking up. UK businesses will undoubtedly be wishing to take advantage and create cyber security jobs for these very students.
