Fomer computer hackers are being recruited for a British cyberspace army, as the UK seeks to defend itself from the growing risk of web terrorism and espionage. The Chinese government made serious attempts to break into the Foreign Office system in 2007 - and the Government believes future cyber attacks are likely and could be deadly.

In response, it has anounced the creation of a national cyber security centre with a cyber security chief to be based at the intelligence-gathering hub of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) in Cheltenham.

Lord West, who chairs Britain's National Security Forum, told Sky News: "Terrorists' ability in cyber warfare will grow, there is an intent from al Qaeda and others.

"We are working very closely with the US on combating this.

"It would be silly to say we don't have any offensive capacity," he revealed, adding that some ex-hackers would be employed to create a force against cyber attackers.

The Government is concerned that terrorists will attempt to hijack a major system in the UK, seriously disrupting normal life and endangering lives.

Another threat comes in the form of cyber attacks by countries attempting to penetrate secure Government systems such as those at the Ministry of Defence

Announcing the opening, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said: "Just as in the 19th century we had to secure the seas for our national safety and prosperity, and in the 20th century we had to secure the air, in the 21st century we have to secure our position in cyberspace."

The centre will also liase with major British companies to try to stem the estimated loss of several billion pounds in trade each year through hacking.

Lord West concluded that while the latest technology could pass information quickly and openly, it had its risks - and that his "Stone Age mobile phone" was more secure than a smartphone.The Government is concerned that terrorists will attempt to hijack a major system in the UK, seriously disrupting normal life and endangering lives.
