Greece is participating for the first time at the European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC) – a prestigious competition for young cyber security enthusiasts, organised by ENISA. TwelveSec is proud to be organising the team along with the Department of Digital Systems of the University of Piraeus, and supported by First Data and Encode.
ENISA (the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security) is running its annual European Cyber Security Challenge 2016 – the largest European challenge for cyber security talent. The goal of the Challenge is to identify cyber security talent, so it’s only open to young InfoSec hobbyists and students, not individuals already working in the industry. The Challenge for 2016 will be held in November in Dusseldorf, Germany, where the Greek National Cyber Security team will compete with other national teams in various security-related challenges, such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering, forensics.
This is the Greek team, ranked according to their performance in the qualifying round:
Harry Mylonas (team leader)
Konstantinos Spyridon Mokos
Runner ups: Efstathios Boukikas, George Mantakos, Argiris Papaioannou, Dimitrios Sapikas
Coach: Yiannis Koukouras
Judge: Dimitris Dorizas
The ECSC finals are being held in Dusseldorf, Germany, between November 7-10. The Greek team is competing against Austria, Estonia, Germany, Romania, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Ireland, Liechtenstein, and Spain.
