The national Cybersecurity team is ranked 26th out of 33 participating countries at the European Cybersecurity Challenge. Luxembourg also wins the third place of the openECSC.
Ten young ethical hackers selected in the Luxembourgish national team Letz Pwn represented the grand duchy at the European Cybersecurity Challenge (ECSC), in Vienna (Austria) from 13 to 16 September, 2022.
After two days of intense competition, the team placed 26th out of 33 participating countries.
A more than satisfactory result, made possible thanks to the commitment and efforts of the team members.
Organised by the European Union Cybersecurity Agency (ENISA), the European Cybersecurity Challenge is a European competition to support young cybersecurity talent (14-25 years old) across Europe.
They can compete against other teams through a series of tests (cryptography, reverse engineering, vulnerability research…), and thus showcase their potential in public organisations, private companies and in the scientific and research community.
On the sidelines of the ECSC, four Luxembourg representatives competed and placed third in the open ECSC – a challenge opened to all.
The participation of the national team in this European competition was made possible thanks to the support of the sponsors and partners CGIE, Excellium, GOVCERT.lu, Lycée Guillaume Kroll, Passbolt, Rsecure, WorldSkills Luxembourg, The Luxembourg foreign and European affairs, the directorate of defence and SECURITYMADEIN.LU (coordinator of the national team and member of the Steering Committee to ENISA).
