European Cyber Security Challenge

MWR’s Matt Watkins and Sam Brown will be taking part in the European Cyber Security Challenge this October, representing the UK!

Today, most countries lack sufficient IT security professionals to protect their IT infrastructure. To help mitigate this problem, many of them setup national cyber security competitions for finding young cyber talents and for encouraging them to pursue a career in cyber security.

The European Cyber Security Challenge leverages these competitions in that it adds a pan-European layer to them: The top cyber talents from each country meet to network and collaborate and finally compete against each other to determine which country has the best cyber talents. To find out who’s countries team is the best, contestants have to solve security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics and collect points for solving them.

The European Cyber Security Challenge is an initiative from ENISA and organizations from six countries involved in the implementation of the first European Cyber Security Challenge in 2015 in Lucerne, Switzerland.
