    No jackets, no business - just hardcore research. This is the main thesis of the 2018 OFFZONE conference. It is about the knowledge gained from personal experience. On the research of enthusiastic people. About work, which allowed to achieve serious results and, of course, a great love for his work.

    The conference headquarters will be located in one of the historical centers of Moscow - on the territory of the Digital October space (formerly the Red October factory). For two days the theme of the post-apocalypse and the cult game Fallout will accompany everyone who manages to get to the conference headquarters.

Cybersecurity and financial technologies are now - two inseparable components that help us pay for purchases every day faster, make life more comfortable and generally feel that technologies do not pass by, but lie right now in our pocket.

    But how it all works and thanks to what technologies it becomes possible - we find out in the FINANCE.ZONE section. Representatives of the financial industry and cyber security experts will talk about how the financial world is structured from a technical point of view, what is its vulnerability and how is it protected.


    Corner of wires, warm lamp light, aromas of rosin and radio waves. Lectures on microcontrollers, FGPA and ATMs. Experienced hardwatchers will talk about how things are (without) danger in the field of iron and electronics. And of course, do not forget about all your favorite master keys! In general, talking about the high in the direction - only low-level conversations at the good old soldering iron.
