By now you should have heard about Take Command, Rapid7’s day-long virtual summit on May 21 bringing together some of the best minds in the cybersecurity sphere for comprehensive discussions on the latest data, challenges, and opportunities in the industry. It’s an opportunity to expand your understanding of the state of play right from the comfort of your own home (or office, or home office).

Our agenda is pretty all-encompassing. We will have sessions on cutting edge tools designed to keep your networks safe and brand new data on attacker behaviors from our Rapid7 Labs team. But the highlights don’t stop there. We will take you through the Rapid7 always-on global SOC so you can see first-hand how we detect and respond to threats from every angle and get strategies for confronting ransomware, state-sponsored threats, and the major vulnerabilities creating headlines (and headaches).

Here are a few more of the featured sessions:

  • Command Your Cloud: Anticipate, Pinpoint, and Act on Cloud Threats: Learn the latest tactics and operational trends for detecting cloud threats and mitigating risks fast.
  • Commander-in-Chief: Enhancing Cybersecurity Culture: Effective security is more than a set of tools and tactics, it is an organization-wide mindset. Discover ways to boost awareness, engagement, and proactive behaviors among all employees.
  • Ready and Resilient: Before, During, & After Ransomware Attacks: We will explore the entire ransomware lifecycle from an attacker’s perspective: recon, toolkits, misconfigurations, the works.
  • Unlocking Security Success: Strategies for Measuring Team Performance and Demonstrating ROI: This session will focus on how to knock those performance and budget conversations out of the park by highlighting data that actually drives momentum.

But wait, there’s more. Take Command is Rapid7’s premier virtual summit so we’ve pulled out all the stops with featured guest speakers.

Andrew Bustamante is a former covert CIA intelligence officer and US Air Force combat veteran turned Fortune 10 corporate advisor. Andrew will join the Take Command Summit for an insightful interview on how dynamic thinking, creative problem solving, and educated risk-taking can elevate your personal and professional life.

Rachel Tobac is the CEO of SocialProof Security, a renowned white hat hacker, and the seemingly perennial winner of DefCon’s Social Engineering Capture the Flag contest (seriously, it was three years in a row). Rachel will talk about how she hacks and the best ways to stop her, standing in for all of the attackers we face daily.

And last but not least, we will have Brian Honan, CEO and Principal Consultant for BHConsulting, on hand to discuss the best practices he has learned over a career in cybersecurity for large companies, multinationals, SMEs, and government agencies.

As you can see, the Take Command agenda and guest list is pretty well stacked, and getting better every day. Tune in here for more details as we get closer to May 21!
