About ECSC


European Cyber Security Challenge 2021 v Praze

An important event planned within the government strategy The Country for the Future with an emphasis on international cooperation. It aims to present the Czech Republic with innovative ideas and companies and make it visible in Europe. The European Cyber Security Challenge is a key activity of the European Union Agency for Cyber Security (ENISA) and aims to support cyber security talent across Europe and harness their potential in public organisations, private companies and science and research.

„We must be able to find and support talented young people who will become the backbone of the security of the Czech Republic and the whole of Europe in the future. This is the only way we can deal with  ímcurrent and future threats. I see this as the main benefit of the ECSC.“

Ing. Karel Řehka
