Tickets now on sale for Positive Hack Days 2

The festival will feature two main areas. In the public space, you'll find hands-on educational exhibits that are open for all to enjoy at no cost. These installations are designed to introduce you to the digital realm and improve your understanding of cybersecurity. For the first time, all guests will get to witness the Standoff cyberbattle—a face-off between ethical hackers and defenders battling for control over a virtual state.

At the expert area, the best of the cybersecurity industry will gather, from beginners to renowned experts, as well as CIOs, and CISOs of major IT companies. Over 250 speakers will be hitting the stage to discuss the latest cybersecurity topics across both technical and business tracks. If you are wishing to visit the expert area, you'll need to buy an entry ticket.

In 2024, there's a fresh new ticket sales scheme rolling out at the cyberfestival. Guests will have the freedom to choose their own price. The minimum purchase amount is 1,000 rubles. All the proceeds from sales will go to the Podari Zhizn charity foundation.

As always, speakers who are eager to showcase the results of their research at the cyberfestival will have free access to any area of the festival. Anyone can be a speaker: from beginners to established pros. Apply to speak by April 1st.

This year, the cyberfestival is bringing back the PHDays Everywhere format. As part of Youth Day on May 25th, a teleconference will bring together venues in five cities across the country: Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, and Tomsk. What's more, the cyberfestival is going global: we're excited to announce a new location in Bangkok, Thailand.

Last year, the event was held open to the public: the large urban cyberfestival in Moscow's Gorky Park was attended by 55,000 visitors, with about 100,000 more following online.
