OFFZONE is an international conference on practical cybersecurity. It brings together security specialists, developers, engineers, researchers, lecturers, and students from Russia and abroad.
Participants share their knowledge and experience: they deliver presentations and attend workshops. The conference focuses only on technical content dedicated to cybersecurity trends.
There are also loads of fun activities to clear your head and relax. You can even get a tattoo if you decide to capture the event in eternity
We'll be happy to see you on August 25–26 at the GOELRO venue: 40 Bolshaya Pochtovaya St., Bld. 7, Moscow, Russia
OFFZONE is primarily designed for techies who want to level up their knowledge, exchange experiences, and talk to legendary experts in an informal setting.
The conference will also be of interest to companies looking for ways to staff up their teams with top talent, organize marketing activities, or present cybersecurity solutions
Unfortunately, no. You’re very welcome to attend, discuss cybersec and play some beer pong once you reach legal adulthood
In 2022, more than 2,000 people attended the event. There were lots of technical content: 68 speakers covered a great deal of topics, from the evolution of cybersecurity to the threats hidden in USB cables.
In parallel to the educational program, there was a competition going on in the CTFZone, as well as a bunch of activities from partners.
There were sections dedicated to the security of software (AppSec.Zone), hardware (DC&HW.Zone), and financial systems (Finance.Zone). You could solder an add-on for your badge at the Craft.Zone and get a free tattoo at—you guessed it—the Tattoo.Zone. And, of course, no event would be complete without tequila and hookah.
