Britain's wartime codebreaking base could host a national cyber security college
"Plans are afoot to build the UK's first National College of Cyber Security at Bletchley Park, the birthplace of the country's wartime codebreaking efforts.
It was at Bletchley Park that Colossus, the world's first electronic computer, was built during World War II to crack the Lorenz code used by the German high command. Bletchley is also where Alan Turing developed some of his mathematical theories of computing while working on breaking the enigma code.
After the war the site fell into disrepair, but parts of it have been restored and now house the UK's National Museum of Computing.
Other buildings at Bletchley Park, though, are still vacant and it is in one of those that Qufaro, a company founded only last year, hopes to set up a cyber security school.”
