Deloitte took place in an international cybersecurity forum PHDays 8

On May 23-24, Moscow hosted the international cybersecurity forum Positive Hack Days 8 (PHDays). Deloitte was a partner of that event, and the team of our experts won a 30-hour cyber battle "The Standoff".

The 30-hour cyberbattle between attackers, defenders, and expert security centers took place in a virtual city of the future whose economy and life support systems are solely based on digital technologies.

Hack.ERS, Deloitte’s ethical hackers team, attacked those systems, looking for opportunities to hack into them and disrupt their operations. For 30 hours our experts were identifying and exploiting such vulnerabilities.

Positive Hack Days conference is among the most prominent cyber security events in Russia, gathering developers, security experts, and hackers from all over the world. Jelle Niemantsverdriet, Director of Cyber Security Risk Services at Deloitte Netherlands, delivered a presentation on cyber security and technology and talked talk about new approaches to both terms to develop and use proper technologies and ways to structure working teams. PHDays also hosted a solemn award ceremony for the winners of the online contest on cyber security Deloitte Hackazon.

Congratulations to our international Cyber Risk team!
