Cybersecurity is very important in the modern Internet age. As the industry grows, more and more people are needed in the field. Although cybersecurity is taught at some universities, the studies often lack practical exercises. One way to proof ones practical skills is by participating in Capture The Flag competitions. These are online or on-site competitions around the globe in which teams compete by solving cybersecurity challenges.
The LetzPwn Team is currently the only Luxembourgish team, that is regularly participating in CTFs. Other european countries have cultivated a clutch of CTF teams (Germany: 92 teams, France: 123 teams, ...). Luxembourg is one step behind various other European countries with respect to cybersecurity culture and awareness. We find it important to pioneer a Luxembourgish community, with the motivation to spread awareness and to enhance our theoretical and practical cybersecurity skills.
