In this episode of Security Nation, Jen and Tod chat with Steve Micallef about SpiderFoot, the open-source intelligence tool of which he is the creator and founder. He tells us how the platform went from a passion project to a fully fledged open-source offering, with a SaaS option to boot, and how it can help security engineers automate tasks and focus on finding the major threats in their data.

Stick around for our Rapid Rundown, where Tod chats with producer Jesse about a new paper that reveals all is not as it seems with CVSS scores.
