The expanding attack perimeter has companies of all sizes struggling to monitor and protect against attackers. Security and risk leaders need more context about the threats that exist across their company's internal and external attack surfaces, as well as the ability to ensure a rapid and complete response.

In this session, Jeffrey Gardner, Rapid7's Practice Advisor to the Detection and Response Practice, will explore the intersection of extended detection and response (XDR) and cyber threat intelligence (CTI) to uncover its many benefits for security risk mitigation:

  • How CTI extends your company's "monitored environment"
  • Ways to improve signal-to-noise ratio and understand your real risk
  • The latest technologies for driving a proactive and automated response
