The UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) which works closely with MI5 and MI6. Has setup an online puzzle to find and recruit real-life tech savvy spies.
The agency has posted the puzzle on a number of social networks and has set a deadline for the task of just over 10 days which is shown by a countdown clock.
A spokesman for GCHQ explains:
“The digital arena is fast moving, and from a recruitment perspective we acknowledge the need to engage with prospective candidates in new and innovative ways,” – “With this marketing initiative we hope to reach out to a broader audience, who may not be attracted to traditional advertising methods.”
Even though GCHQ are looking too recruit tech savvy spies, it does say that anyone who is found to have illegally hacked the code will not be eligible for recruitment. Can you Crack It Good Luck!
