Can you pass spy HQ Jane Bond test?

Sunday Mirror - - KHAN SAIRA -

CY­BER spies are tar­get­ing girls to join the next gen­er­a­tion of code break­ers.

At present, women only hold 11 per cent of cy­ber and spy jobs at the Na­tional Cy­ber Se­cu­rity Cen­tre, a branch of GCHQ.

So the cen­tre is run­ning a code-crack­ing con­test open to teams of girls aged 12 to 13. It in­volves a week of on­line tests in Jan­uary and a fi­nals day in March.

Dig­i­tal minister Mar­got James said: “We want to show girls that cy­ber se­cu­rity is ex­cit­ing, re­ward­ing and chal­leng­ing.

“It will help in­spire the work­force of the fu­ture.”
