Could you represent the UK in Europe?

Posted — 20.04.2018

The sun is out and the Challenge year is underway. Our second qualifiers of the year are now live, and these lead to an event unlike any of our others.

Not only will you have the chance to secure a spot on Team UK, representing your country at the European Cyber Security Challenge, but there are also ten places at our grand finale up for grabs!

There is also a unique opportunity for young industry professionals, aged 25 or under, to take part and compete for a place in the European team.

Both competitions have different entry criteria, so please check the grid below to know which you will be competing for. The highest scorers of our qualifying rounds will be invited to battle it out in a face-to-face event, hosted by NCC Group in Manchester on 15th June.

If you are new to Challenge competitions, you can find some helpful tools in our toolkit. There’s more info below on the qualifying challenges and game rules.

Let us know how you are doing. You can find us on Twitter (@cyberchallenge / #CyberF2F), Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
