Session Title: Bad software is taking over the world...it's time to fight back!

We are gripped with security anxiety in a world where software is unavoidable. Codiscope's mission is to make sure that our children can safely use apps every day.

We would like to welcome the outside community to tour vibrant office space and participate in an interactive learning experience. We will demonstrate how the Codiscope approach to security is different and why it is no longer acceptable to take risks with cyber security. Through real-life examples and actionable training, we believe that developers can build vulnerability-free software from the start. Visitors will learn how to start taking active steps to defend themselves from the bad software that is threatening to take over the world.

Watch a short video from Codiscope here.

Special Message to Attendees:
Codiscope is located at 20 Park Plaza, Suite 1400. All guests will be pre-registered by a Codiscope staff member. Please bring a valid ID with you to present to the Park Plaza security staff upon request. A Codiscope employee will meet you in the lobby where you will be given a temporary pass to the Park Plaza building.

Rapid7 will take attendees for a (metaphorical) ride on the trail blazing track of the Rapid7 Express train to IT security market leadership. Our company was named after the train our founders took to work while they developed their vision for simple, innovative solutions that would help customers face the increasing threats of an evolving IT landscape - and our NewCo event theme will bring that story to life.

Participants will convene in the café at Rapid7's 100 Summer St. Boston headquarters to hear opening remarks from CEO Corey Thomas, including Corey's perspective on:

1) Rapid7's history and the series of major milestones the company has achieved over the past 12 months -- IPO and strategic acquisitions among them,
2) security?s evolution as he sees it, including what lies ahead for the security market given the dynamic nature of the threat landscape, and
3) Rapid7?s and his passion for security and view on the biggest challenges facing organizations when it comes to dealing with cybercrime.

Next, Rapid7's Chief People Officer will introduce the group to the company's Core Values and talk about why and how they were chosen, why they are important and how to go about living by them -- a discussion that emphasizes the importance of fostering and maintaining a rockin' corporate culture.

Then, the group will be divided into teams and they will receive a special map for the NewCo event - one that resembles a railway system map - that highlights Rapid7?s core values and / or significant moments in the company's history. On a tour of the facility, at stops along the way, participants will have the unique opportunity to hear from (and Q&A with) various Conductors on the Rapid7 team about the core values and what they mean to them personally. As an added bonus, participants will play a game of Rapid7 Bingo to keep things fun and engaging all along the way.

The experience will give attendees an interactive, inside look at how one of the hottest infosec companies in the game is using analytics and data-driven innovation, along with a group of the smartest and most fun security industry pros and researchers, to detect, respond to, and protect against the most advanced and sophisticated cyber threats facing organizations today - and in the future.
