The first government supported MOOC to inspire and educate the next generation of cyber security professionals in the UK launches today.

The first government supported ‘Massive Open Online Course’ (MOOC) to inspire and educate the next generation of cyber security professionals in the UK launches today (3 september 2014).

The free online course has been developed with the Open University and is the first of its kind anywhere in the world to gain government support. The course is for anyone wanting to improve their knowledge and skills and has the potential to reach 200,000 students. It will help to inspire the next generation of cyber security professionals, ensuring the UK has the knowledge and capability to meet current and future challenges. It will also help to raise awareness of cyber security amongst the general public.

This week sees the largest gathering of world leaders ever to take place in the UK as Wales plays host to the 2014 NATO Summit. The UK’s role in global defence and world business will be on the world stage as international leaders seek to address the full range of threats that we face, including the increasing proliferation of cyber-attacks.

The NATO Summit shines a spotlight on the UK’s thriving defence industry. Government is working closely with the defence sector to secure new investment, creating highly-skilled jobs. The UK cyber security sector alone is worth over £6 billion and employs around 40,000 people.

Minister for Culture and the Digital Economy, Ed Vaizey said:
