This first edition concluded on Friday 17th June after two days of intensive and relentless competition between the teams to master this year’s cybersecurity challenges. The team who managed to solve most challenges and the winner of the ICC 2022 is Team Europe, followed by Team Asia in second place and Team USA in third place.
The Commission congratulates Team Europe - the winners of the ICC 2022 - and all the regional teams for their active participation and engagement.
European Commission Vice-President Margaritis Schinas delivered the award to the winning team, stating:
The world needs more cybersecurity professionals. Our society needs more people with the right security skills to protect our democracies, our values, our interconnected world. So today we meet this cybersecurity skills shortage challenge with another challenge, the International Cybersecurity Challenge competition. This competition is a great opportunity to raise awareness on the need for more cybersecurity experts in the field. It is an example of how by working together we can address the cybersecurity skills gap and bring our youth to the forefront of finding solutions to shield us from today’s ever-increasing threats.
The competition took place in Athens, Greece.
