Pacific Hacker Conference is an information security and hacking conference that gathers the brightest minds in cybersecurity and hacking from Silicon Valley and beyond. Focusing on cutting-edge techniques, research, and developments, we aim to create an environment where knowledge is shared and connections are made. Our audience ranges from security professionals, researchers, and ethical hackers to industry decision-makers. We keep the Conference small, allowing us to provide what other Cons leave out.


We provide a presentation track, a workshop track, and a place to chill and learn while connecting with other like-minded individuals. No egos. No divas. It’s just a good time and good content. Join the conversation.


Conference Goals 


Pacific Hackers Association's major conferences focus on the current hot topics in information security. PHA events explore those topics even more by getting involvement from all who attend. For example, speakers are given time after talks to continue conversations at PHA events. Space and time are provided to encourage new ideas that could be the topics at future significant developments and conferences. Sponsorship brings you into that conversation! 


Target Audience 


While each PHA event is distinct, we welcome anyone interested in the cybersecurity community to attend. Pacific Hackers Conference is an event for all levels of experience and  diverse backgrounds – from the industry professionals offsetting or augmenting their current security skill set, to the students looking for potential career opportunities in the security community, as well as industry leaders looking to share their vast experiences. One thing they all have in common is a desire to connect with others in the community and discuss emerging issues. These are connections and experiences they can call upon throughout their career. 


PHA is not made up of members but rather participants. Each person who participates in PHA brings to it something to contribute. Some people bring hardware, organizational skills, or their friends. You are offering to bring other resources that help fuel the conversation. Sponsoring enables you to engage the conversation and interact with attendees, and our commitment to connect you with those attendees of interest to you and your business. The organizers hope your participation will enable another great PHA event.
