Practical Threat Modelling

While there are a few books and presentations on Threat Modelling, resources and guidance is limited when it comes to applying these concepts in the real-world. It can be very daunting and overwhelming when tasked with constucting a new threat model, hence this training is not just about learning the theory, but also about sharing the war-stories and approaches from the instructor's years of threat modelling work. Along with that, this course also includes practical hands-on exercises to consolodate the concepts taught.


Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained an excellent understanding of Threat Modelling concepts, and be able to apply those concepts to effectively model threats that face an application, or organisation.


Course Highlights:

  • Designed to be accessible to a wide audience.
  • Taught with a relaxed atmosphere, and open discussion is encouraged.
  • Premotes the understanding of threat modelling concepts, with technical details kept to a minimum.

Level: Beginner

Duration: 1 day
