What is ECSC?
In a nutshell, ECSC is the annual European competition promoted by the European Commission through ENISA, that brings together young talent from across Europe to have fun and compete in an in depth cyber-security challenge event.
The Institute of Technology in Blanchardstown (ITB) has been the driving force behind supporting an Irish team each year at the European finals. Zero Days security and ITB want the best of the best to represent Ireland, and each year select the top juniors and seniors to represent the country and showcase our talent.
Regardless of whether you are a security professional already, a student or if working with computers and networks is just your passion, then the European Cyber-Security Challenge is for you! Teams have to solve security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, HW, RF and IoT security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics.
There are strict rules about who can represent each team, but if you are eligible you have the chance to become a member of the Irish national team competing against international teams from all over Europe! Meet other like-minded people and make your passion your career.
