The growing need for IT security professionals is widely acknowledged worldwide. To help mitigate this shortage of skills, many countries launched national cyber security competitions targeting towards students, university graduates or even non-ICT professionals with a clear aim to find new and young cyber talents and encourage young people to pursue a career in cyber security. The European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC) leverages on these competitions by adding a pan-European layer.
The European Cyber Security Challenge is an initative by the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) and aims at enhancing cyber security talent accross Europe and connecting high potentials with industry leading organizations.
In 2017, the Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE) will be the host of the fourth edition of European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC). On behalf of INCIBE, we would like to welcome you to this year’s European Cyber Security Challenge final.
