International Cybersecurity Challenge (ICC)

ICC logo

ENISA, together with other regional and international organisations, decided to design and host for the first time the International Cybersecurity Challenge (ICC).

The aim of the challenge is to attract young talent and raise awareness in the community, globally, on the education and skills needed in the area of cybersecurity.

14-17 June 2022
Athens, Greece

Towards this direction, a Steering Committee comprising government and regional institutions, and universities and research centres, will design a competition between teams from different regions. Teams will compete in a series of challenges, such as, web application and system exploitation, cryptography, reverse engineering, hardware challenges and attack/defence challenges.  The ICC brand is expected to be associated with the top cybersecurity talents of the world and we expect ICC to become one of the key incubators of cybersecurity entrepreneurship and future top security experts in the world.

ENISA is committed to organise the first ICC event in Greece and support the development of the common competition ruleset. Each region will be represented at the competition by a team, comprising young talents from counties within the respective geographical areas. The regions will be responsible for selecting and training team members. The International competition will be held in Athens between 14-17 June 2022.
