When you think about fall in New England, the visions that should flow through your head are gorgeous foliage, cool autumn nights... and the evolution of incident detection and response technology. That's right, it's time we start talking about UNITED 2016, Rapid7's annual user conference held in Boston (this year it's November 1-3).

This UNITED, we have a major initiative to help you cut through the industry noise, acronyms, and buzzwords around IDR. That is why this year's IDR track will combine what we've learned from our red and blue teams, Rapid7 research, and technology in tangible stories and techniques you can bring back to home base.

A slice of what you can expect:

  • Free access to a 3-hour intensive: Planning, Building, and Testing an IDR Program. Led by Wade Woolwine and Jordan Rogers, this covers the groundwork for fast action before a breach occurs by planning an efficient and coordinated response.
  • Tales from the Cloak: A combination of our Pen Testing and Incident Response teams will analyze their engagements – what themes are they seeing? How does this impact you today?
  • Data Science: Rapid7 research findings and our progress in detecting threats never before seen in the wild
  • The Insight Platform: Rapid7's vision for Incident Detection and Response, sharing the attacks we've caught that other security stacks…didn't.

We'll touch on the top attack vectors behind breaches: compromised credentials, malware, and phishing, and the latest developments in detecting them today. UNITED 2016 is a time for all of us to refresh, inspire, and collaborate with the rest of the Rapid7 family.

Now that you know what to expect, tell me what do you want? What do you need? Is there a topic you'd like to hear more about? Now is the time to let us know, because UNITED is your event!
