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.

  • Innovations in hacking information systems and methods in applied security
  • Approaches to security in the age of the Internet of Things
  • Protection of critical infrastructure
  • Physical security in the IT context
  • Fraud and cybercrime
  • Detection and investigation of security incidents
  • Creation and improvement of security products
  • Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDL)

Talks and roundtables

PHDays hosts talks by security professionals, closed and public roundtables with opinion leaders, and hands-on labs with prominent experts.

Hacking challenges

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).


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.
