Britain is launching a cyber skills programme for thousands of teenagers and investing 23.4 million euros on developing extra-curricular activities and a core curriculum.
The idea is pupils will later be able to better protect the businesses or institutions they will one day work for.
The move comes at a time when fear over cyber attacks is on the rise, and several attacks have been committed in Britain.
Islamic militants hacked into NHS websites in January, flooding them with grisly images of victims of the war in Syria, and Chinese and Russian industrial and political espionage has also been identified as a potent threat.
Pupils aged 14-18 will be targeted, with the aim of training 5,700 teenagers by the end of the decade, with participants expected to commit to four hours study a week over four years.
