About the European Cyber Security Challenge
1th The competition was held in October 2015 in Lucerne, Switzerland with the participation of 6 teams from EU Member States and European Free Trade Association countries. In the digital age, information security is a top priority at the global level. This is due to the particular role that information plays in modern society, the economy, production and geopolitical relations. Given that information attacks are constantly on the rise, with the aim of both gaining and destabilizing key structures, digital security should be ensured and evaluated in every sector and activity on a daily basis. This requires better organized structures, greater investment, but, above all, properly trained human resources. Conducting competitions such as the ECSC is an appropriate basis for educating people, and especially young people, that with their knowledge and talent will be the shield of digital society.
