The European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC) draws the best of the UK’s emerging cyber specialists (aged 16-25) and pits them against their contemporaries in Europe. From 2015 – 2019 we selected and managed the UK team (“Team UK”) and worked with industry leaders who provided the technical training to ensure our teams had the best chance in the competition. Venues have been: 2015 Switzerland, 2016 Germany, 2017 Spain, 2018 London UK, 2019 Romania, 2021 Czech Republic, 2022 Austria, 2023 Norway.
Run by ENISA, the competition is a challenging exploration of the skills needed for a successful career in cyber security. The ECSC is also an unique opportunity to connect with industry leaders, network with peers from across the continent and discover more about the cyber security industry. The 2020 ECSC was postponed (due to COVID) and the UK was not involved in the 2021 Competition in Prague, 2022 in Austria nor 2023 in Hamar, Norway. We hope DSIT will enable a UK team to enter once again in due course.
