Positive Hack Days
Bringing the world's cutting edge in digital security to Moscow every year. Held since 2011.Organized by Positive Technologies.
Every year, PHDays hosts talks by developers, security experts, and hackers from all over the world. Roundtables, both public and closed, bring together government figures, corporate executives (CIO/CISO), and top specialists from the banking, telecom, oil and gas, manufacturing, and IT industries. Globally renowned experts hold workshops and hands-on labs.
The agenda reflects the needs of the entire community, including the timeliest topics in digital security:
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.
Defcon has a competitor now. It's nice.
It's this coziness to it that conferences of this size rarely have.
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.
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.
