11 young people of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg have been selected to participate in the European Cybersecurity Challenge
The sixth edition of the European Cybersecurity Challenge (ECSC) will take place in Bucharest as from October 9th until October 11th. 19 countries participate – Luxembourg for the first time.
In December 2018 the Cybersecurity Competence Center Luxembourg (C3) and partners launched the first _Lëtz Cybersecurity Challenge _to identify young talents in the field of cybersecurity. More than 150 young people registered to face multiple online challenges.
The challenges were especially designed by experts of the C3 and partners. Not only technical knowhow was required, but also creativity and economic skills. To put the first Lëtz Cybersecurity Challenge in a realistic frame, the different challenges were set in the context of space mining.
Of the 150 participants , 11 made it into the national team, the Lëtz Cybersecurity Team, to represent the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg at the ECSC 2019 in Bucharest. Experts of the C3 will coach the Lëtz Cybersecurity Team all over the summer to prepare the young talents for the ECSC in October.
ECSC is an initiative by the European Union Agency for Network an Information Security – ENISA, and aims at enhancing cyber security talent across Europe.
C3 is operated by SECURITYMADEIN.LU with the mission to offer G-to-B-to-B services together with partners, to foster long-term wealth and competence building and to increase Luxembourg’s attractiveness and reputation in cybersecurity.
