Teens to be cy­ber tecs

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

A QUEST to find the top minds to de­fend the UK from cy­ber ter­ror at­tacks is to be launched among pupils aged 14 and above.

Around 5,700 of them will be taught “real-world chal­lenges” in a £20mil­lion project to boost the 58,000 ex­perts who are al­ready work­ing on cy­ber se­cu­rity.

Hack­ing is now rated one of the four ma­jor threats to our na­tional de­fence.

Dig­i­tal and Cul­ture Min­is­ter Matt Han­cock said: “This will see thou­sands given the op­por­tu­nity to learn se­cu­rity skills.”
