New Cyber College for Next Generation of Codebreakers to Open at Bletchley Park

In 2017, a training academy dedicated to cyber security is slated to open at Britain's Bletchley Park, where the code-breaking work of Turing and his team helped save millions of lives. The school will nurture talented 16 to 19-year-olds with a focus on cyber security and research.

The National College of Cyber Security is part of a £50 million plan to bolster the country's defences against increasing cyber attacks. It is funded by an industry-wide initiative called Qufaro, which includes representatives from BT and The National Museum of Computing.
