The MoD has announced that it is to set up a new Army Reserve unit with a dedicated capability to counter-attack in cyberspace and, if necessary, to strike in cyberspace.
The MoD is set to recruit hundreds of computer experts as cyber reservists to help defend the UK’s national security, working at the cutting-edge of the nation’s cyber defences.
Recruiting for the Joint Cyber Reserve will commence this month and target three sectors: regular personnel leaving the armed forces, current and former reservists with the necessary skills, and individuals with no previous military experience, but with the technical knowledge, skills, experience and aptitude to work in this highlyspecialised area.
All personnel applying to join will be subject to a security clearance process.
