Cyber Battle of Estonia 2022

October 29th, 2022 at the sports building of the University of Tartu

About the event

For the third year in a row, Cyber Battle of Estonia is organising a series of cyber hacking events aimed at young people aged 15-24.

The main goal is to make young people more cyber-savvy by providing them with knowledge in the cybersecurity field through practical cyber courses. We also aim to introduce how working in the cyber world looks like and what are the relevant skills and knowledge required. Cybersecurity is important everywhere!

Real-life situations are used in the regional pre-qualifier rounds and the final competition. For example a situation, where the city government needs help because malware has entered their server, paralysing all of the city’s systems from street lighting, pedestrian crossings and bicycle lanes. Or the traffic control tower needs assistance as they have been hit by a redemption claim and all data is encrypted.

Our goal is to introduce work in the cyber world and the relevant skills and knowledge required. Cyber security is important everywhere!

There are not enough good guys in the field. Get involved and become a cyber-savvy youngster!

Part III: final competition

The final competition of the Cyber Battle of Estonia 2022 is similar to the superstar competition – we are looking for the next cyber superstars. Up to 100 young cyber-stars will compete in teams of three to five, from which the best team will be determined.

In addition, competitors from abroad will virtually take part in the competition. They are all competing for the same goal of solving cyber challenges and becoming a cyber superstar.

The final competition will take place on 29 October 2022 in the sports building of the University of Tartu (Ujula 4, Tartu).
