Bletchley Park: The UK government will team with the Open University to launch a cyber security course “very soon” that will enable 200,000 people to study online.

Speaking at the media opening and tour of Bletchley Park today, the Cabinet Office deputy director of Cyber Defence and Incident Management, Natalie Black, said the initiative will aim to bring education to 200,000 people with an overall aim to “introduce them to the subject”.

“This area is incredibly challenging Bletchley [Park] is a great reminder what we can do effectively in the UK when we all work together and pull our talent,” Black said. “At the moment we are working very hard to develop a pipeline of cyber talent. [For example], we are working hard with e-skills to give people the opportunity to transfer to cyber careers and very soon we’ll be launching a new initiative at the Open University where we hope to allow 200,000 people to study cyber security online.”

Black said that she couldn’t say exactly when the initiative will launch, and just wanted to give attendees of the Bletchley Park press open day a taster of what’s to come. She did reveal, however, that the effort will aim to share real-time information with students and that the university will work very closely with industry.
