UBITECH proudly supports (for the second year in a row) the Hellenic Cyber Security Team‘s efforts at the European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC), organized by ENISA, between October 15 to October 19, in London, UK. The 2018 ECSC challenge is aimed at identifying new talent – by having national teams compete in a Cyber Security Challenge. In particular, 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. To find out which country’s team is the best, contestants have to solve security related tasks from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics and collect points for solving them.
The team that will compete in the 2018 ECSC challenge grand finals is assembled after a qualification round, held on April 18-19, 2018, which determined the top 10 cyber security talents in Greece (aged between 14-25) – among them, UBITECH’s Petros Mantos (0nlyslayer) who qualified second for the Hellenic Cyber Security Team through the EthiHak 2018 contest. The team will compete in the Challenge 2018 finals, in London, UK.
