Talks and roundtables
PHDays hosts talks by security professionals, closed and public roundtables with opinion leaders, and hands-on labs with prominent experts.
The venue will be filled with contests: hack an ATM, smart home, surveillance cameras, IoT devices, smart cars, and much more. At the center of the forum is The Standoff, a 30-hour cyberbattle between teams of attackers, defenders, and security operations centers (SOCs).

We have been organizing security conferences for more than ten years. The major part of them are boring corporate events. However, this conference is something completely different. It not only inspires, it is very practical and quite counter-cultural.
Nick GalbreathCTO and Founder of Signal Sciences
Defcon has a competitor now. It's nice.
Travis GoodspeedAn innovative security researcher
It's this coziness to it that conferences of this size rarely have.
Marc "van Hauser" HeuseThe Hacker's Choice
PHDays is special because of combining hackers and business together.
PHDays has been very impressive. It's a combination of being very well organized and having a lot of great content. The location is also fantastic.
Fun and games
Who says hackers don't know how to have fun? PHDays will have an art exhibition, contests with arcade games, and souvenirs available for purchase.
