Today, most countries lack sufficient IT security professionals to protect their IT infrastructure. The European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC) is aimed at identifying new talent – by having national teams compete in a Cyber Security Challenge!

Pylones Hellas is a proud supporter and a Diamond Sponsor of the Hellenic Cyber Security Team efforts at the European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC), organized by ENISA, between October 9 to October 11, in Bucharest, Romania.

The European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC) is an annual European competition promoted by the European Commission through ENISA, bringing together young people to compete in Cyber Security, aiming to uncover new InfoSEc talent within Europe. The top cyber talents from each country meet to network and collaborate and finally compete against each other to determine which country has the best cyber talents.  The competition is very demanding, with skillful contestants solving security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics and collect points for solving them.

The Hellenic Cyber Security Team consists of 10 individuals (ages 14-25), high-school and university students, as well as researchers and professionals who excelled in the qualification rounds. The Department of Digital Systems of the University of Piraeus is responsible for organizing the Greek participation in the competition. Led by the Professor Christos Xenakis, a specialized team of cyber security experts are already preparing the Hellenic team for the European ECSC 2019 Challenge.

We are really proud of our National Cybersecurity Team and we deeply wish its members, All the Best!

Hellenic Cyber Security Team, let’s prove that we got IT!
