Welcome to The Lost Bots, a new vlog series where Rapid7 resident expert and former CISO Jeffrey Gardner (virtually) sits down with fellow industry experts to spill the tea on current events and trends in the security space. They’ll also share security best practices and trade war stories with the Rapid7 SOC team. The best part? Each episode is short, sweet, and to the (end)point – so you gain insights from the industry’s brightest in just 15 minutes.

For this inaugural episode, Jeffrey sits down with Rapid7 Insight Platform SVP Pete Rubio and IntSights Cofounder and CPO Alon Arvats to discuss how teams can successfully leverage external threat intelligence to identify and mitigate lurking attacks. They tackle the “what”, “why”, and “how” of external threat intelligence. They also share how security teams can effectively put external threat intel into action and what behaviors and telemetry are the most useful to find advanced threats.

Stay tuned for future episodes of The Lost Bots! For our second installment, Jeffrey will be back to discuss a topic we’ve all been hearing a lot about in recent months: Extended Detection and Response, or XDR.
