European countries have started or are preparing to kick off their national cybersecurity competitions. The winners of the national contests will represent their countries in the ultimate cybersecurity competition on the continent: the European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC) 2019.
As with the ECSC, the national cybersecurity competitions consist of security-related challenges from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering, and forensics, which the participants have to solve in order to collect points. The individuals or teams with the most points win the competition and secure a place in their national team, which will go on to compete in the ECSC 2019.
In some countries, the national cybersecurity competitions have already finished, some of them are currently ongoing, while others will begin later on this year. ENISA and all the participating countries will post regular updates on the national competitions through their social media channels. Be sure to subscribe to and follow them. The official hashtag of the European Cybersecurity Challenge final will be #ECSC2019.
