Developing a Threat Modeling Mindset
Feedback form is now closed.
Nearly every day we hear about another compromise of a system that involves a breakdown of security. In many cases, the reason for compromise can be traced back to vulnerabilities that were not found or understood and not mitigated. The attacker(s) used those vulnerabilities to carry out threats against the system.

Threat modeling is a way of thinking about what can go wrong and how to prevent it. Instinctively, we all think this way in regard to our own personal security and safety. When it comes to building or evaluating information systems, we need to develop a similar mindset. In this session, Robert provides practical strategies to develop a threat modeling mindset by: understanding a system, identifying threats, identifying vulnerabilities, determining mitigations and applying the mitigations through risk management.
