According to the DNSC, the Romanian Cyber Security Challenge (RoCSC) is an annual Capture The Flag (CTF) type event, which aims to identify talented young people in cybersecurity, lay the foundations of a community of cyber enthusiasts and actively contribute to the training process of experts, in the context of an increasingly acute need on the labor market for specialists in the field. In this context, the competition also has the role of selecting the eligible members for the Romanian team that will participate in the European Championship. The registration process for ROCSC24 is already active, so eligible young people (under the age of 25) can register for the competition on the rocsc.ro website, until March 7, 2024, and interested young people can start on one among the qualification paths to the preliminary batch of the cyber security representative. The first stage of selection (exclusively online) will take place between March 8 and 10, 2024, and the final will take place physically, in Bucharest, between May 22 and 25, 2024. According to the DNSC: "For the curious who want to participate and tests the skill in the field in a competitive setting, but does not fall into the age category required to be selected for the national team, there is also the possibility to compete outside the competition in the Open category.

During the bootcamp, young people will be tested and trained through exercises in the field of web application security, cyber attack and defense, cryptography , network traffic analysis, reverse engineering, etc.".
