Presentation: Using Metasploit Framework to Improve Security Defense

Speaker: Cody Pierce – Principal Product Manager, Rapid7

Abstract: Metasploit Framework is the industry standard open source penetration testing platform. But did you know it is also a powerful defensive tool? Our industry is in a constant game of cat-and-mouse where the fundamentals are hard and the attackers are smart. By taking advantage of the open source spirit of Metasploit Framework we can do more with less. This talk will focus on maximizing the Metasploit Framework to automate the simulation of attacks, verify security controls, and improve your security posture.


Cody Pierce has been researching offensive technologies for the past 20 years. Most notably as a vulnerability researcher and exploit developer for the TippingPoint Zero Day Initiative. After ZDI, Cody lead offensive and defensive product research teams at Endgame, focused on building next-gen endpoint protection capabilities. Recently, Cody has joined Rapid7 as the Principal Product Manager of Metasploit, with a passion to leverage the “Attacker Mindset” to improve defenses in the Information Security Industry.
