During the CSWL Gala & Awards Night 2023 held on 19 October at Kinepolis, TeamLU has been awarded MOST
PROMISING YOUNG TALENT. The Award was handed over by Ben Fetler, Directorate of Defence of the Luxembourg
Improved score for TeamLU at the ECSC2023
A total of 34 teams representing EU Member States and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries,
well as the five guest teams of Canada, Georgia, Serbia, Costa Rica, Singapore and the United States of
America, took part in this year’s challenge. Latvia participated as an observer.
Germany is the winner of the 2023 edition of the ECSC, followed by Switzerland in second place and
in third place. Luxembourg scored 20th, 4 places better than 2022.
The ECSC consists of security-related challenges such as hardware challenges, web and mobile security,
crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics.
Technical expertise, though, is not enough to be successful in such a challenge. The participants need to
work as a team in a complex environment where decision-making must be both fast and efficient.
Thanks to all our partners supporting TeamLU in this big adventure!
Captain of TeamLU
I can remember, I have liked to build and break stuff, including
solving puzzles. After having done an internship in a security team
during my bachelor, I decided to pursue security in my master's
degree and now start looking for jobs.
I am a dedicated
Cybersecurity student with a strong passion for digital safety and
data protection. Always eager to explore the latest security
protocols and technologies, and committed to pursuing a career in the
fast-paced, ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape.
am passionate about using software in ways it was not intended. I'm
always trying to break stuff and pushing things to their limits. My
particular focus lies in the area of web security and all aspects of
offensive security, including penetration testing and red teaming. I
am enthusiastic about acquiring new skills and expertise and I'm
always eager to learn new things.
I have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science & Engineering and I
am currently in my second year of my master's in Cybersecurity at
TUDelft in the Netherlands. After my studies, I plan on pursuing a
career in Cybersecurity.
I first gained an interest in cybersecurity 4 years ago during the
first LCSC and since then have only
honed my skills in the
field, leading to a Bachelor in Cybersecurity from the University of
employment in Threat Intelligence for a year now.
The aspect in cybersecurity I personally enjoy the most
hunting threat actors, figuring out their TTPs and ultimately
identifying them and having them arrested.
Having a tangible
impact by protecting people and researching espionage activities by
the most capable organizations
the world motivates me to keep improving my skills and turning up to
work. I am able to use these talents
the Luxembourgish team, focussing on Reversing and Forensics
challenges, through which I have won
"Most promising young talent" award four times. I'm excited
to keep supporting the Luxembourgish cyber
by participating in the national team or by helping keep the national
from malicious actors
I currently study a bachelor in computer science at EPFL, planning
study cybersecurity for my masters there too. I am very passionate
about cybersecurity in general, but more specifically about reverse
engineering, low-level security and physical security.
during my studies in Informatics at Vienna University of Technology,
I had first contact points with security in computer science. Over
the years, I developed a strong passion for the broad field of
cybersecurity and am particularly interested in web security, being
fascinated by the interaction between users, webservers and malicious
actors. I love competing with and against like-minded people in
so-called Capture-The-Flag competitions and I am looking forward to
building the Luxembourgish cybersecurity community.
a Master student studying Cyber Security in Zurich. I am mostly
interested in cryptography and I find it fascinating how it can be
used to keep our sensitive data both private and secure.
I currently study Quantum Technology at Aalto University in Finland.
Cybersecurity and computer science in general as well as electronics have interested me for
years, and during my free time I work on projects related to computer graphics and occasionally
physics. Capture the flag competitions caught my interest around 2018, and since then I have
actively dug deeper into how computers do (and sometimes don't) work down at the hardware level.
pursuing a degree in Computer Science at the University of
Luxembourg, I have always been fascinated in the ever-evolving field
of cybersecurity. This sector is full of daily unique challenges and
fuels my curiosity to dive into the various parts of the ecosystem. I
am particularly passionate about threat intelligence, data privacy
and digital forensics - areas where we can see the impact of our
digital footprints. In my free time I enjoy working on my side
projects and staying
up-to-date with the latest news and technologies in this field,
preparing myself for new challenges.
Coach of the Luxembourgish CTF Team
President of the non-profit Cybersecurity community LetzPwn
Penetration tester for the CERT gouvernemental
Always happy to help :)
I am a teacher for ICT and I am the
program coordinator of a higher education training program in
Cybersecurity offered at the Lycée Guillaume Kroll. I aim to
attracting more young people to cybersecurity trainings and careers.
Before entering the education profession, I
in-depth technical knowledge and experience in IT infrastructure and
as a team coach for the Luxembourg team as well as an ECSC steering
currently pursuing a BTS in Cybersecurity at LGK. During my free
time, I dedicate a significant amount of effort to expanding my
knowledge in offensive security through platforms like Tryhackme and
Hackthebox. I earned the Google Cybersecurity Analyst Certification
in my free time outside of my coursework, which highlights my
motivation and dedication to furthering my skills in this field. I am
consistently enthusiastic about exploring new areas and embracing the
rapid advancements in this field, which is why I am particularly
interested in this ever-evolving profession.

I am currently studying Informatics at the Technical University of
interest in Cybersecurity was sparked quite recently when I got
introduced to the topic last semester at a university course.
then, I started taking more and more courses revolving around Network
Security, Hardware Security and Cryptography and I started
participating in Capture the Flags.
really fascinates me about cybersecurity is that every challenge
feels like a scavenger hunt: Looking for clues about the system,
trying to make sense out of them, recognizing flaws and ultimately
crafting exploits for the found vulnerabilities.
I’m a cybersecurity enthusiast, with a background in electronics and a
graduate of a BTS program currently pursuing my studies in
informatics at the University of Reims. I got interested in
cybersecurity when I started learning IT and electronics.
Enthusiastic and motivated student in BTS Cybersecurity at Lycée Guillaume Kroll
Esch/Alzette with problem-solving skills and strong team
recently graduated from the European School Luxembourg 1, and I am
starting a degree in Mathematics at Imperial College London. What
interests me the most in Cybersecurity is understanding
different programs (especially encryption algorithms) and finding a
way to break them.
