"…The stands were all crowded and the presentations were standing room only. Every year, the brightest voices in security from Russia and the whole world come here to speak. The cherry on the cake is that the presentations all show real examples of ways to solve problems encountered in real life. PHDays is truly in the global big leagues in terms of both content and number of participants."

"If all infosec events in Russia had to disappear except for one, PHDays would be the one to keep. Conceived with the idea of bringing coders together with C-suite types, PHDays has been doing precisely that for seven years now. My acquaintance with the conference blossomed into friendship, and now into something beyond even that. Why do I speak here every year? To 'set my watch' — to know that I'm in sync with the industry and learn from the bleeding edge. Cyberwar is unforgiving and it will take wits to survive."


It doesn't get any more realistic than Standoff. Teams of defenders work in real time with security operations center (SOC) teams to secure the infrastructure of a mock city. Meanwhile, attacker teams are trying every trick conceivable to wreak mayhem and take control. The city fully recreates the digital infrastructure of a bank, telecom company, electrical plant and substation, oil and gas companies, office complex, smart home, and more.
Team members in Standoff come from clients, manufacturers, and vendors of security-related products and services.

"…We were able to do the most important thing: test and prove our capacity to handle any urgent security tasks that may arise, even when resources and time are in short supply. Also, inspiration came for a few ideas to improve the user experience of our product Jet Detective."

"Positive Hack Days long ago became more than just another security event. At PHDays VII, we saw the proof: the security community was real, here, and represented by over 5,000 people. The event is one-of-a-kind in the security space and, I would guess, the most difficult one to organize. IBM Security leadership was impressed by the benefits for our business: at our stand, we presented our solutions for information security. Then, during Standoff, we demonstrated the effectiveness of these solutions in real conditions. Try as they might, none of the hacker teams were able to breach the railroad, which we were responsible for protecting."
