Threat Modeling Training
or Whiteboard Hacking training
Our threat modeling training is aimed at software developers, architects, system managers, and security professionals. We organise our courses in-house on-demand, in open sessions, at conferences and now also online in our Threat Modeling Practitioner training.
Threat modeling is the way to avoid risks in your applications upfront. Without threat modeling your protection is a shot in the dark and you will only know your vulnerabilities once someone exploits them.
You will learn our risk-based unified threat modeling practice and how to keep it aligned with your business objectives using our Threat Modeling Playbook. With hands-on threat modeling challenges, you will apply the different stages of threat modeling on real world scenarios.
Most of our trainings are organized as in-company trainings teaching development teams and threat modeling practitioners how to threat model and how to start and improve an efficient threat modeling practice.
Since 2021 we deliver our threat modeling training through our training subsidiary Data Protection Institute (DPI).
Discover and register for our new Threat Modeling trainings on the DPI website.

Our “Threat Modeling Insider” (TMI) newsletter brings a combination of guest articles, white papers, curated articles and tips on threat modeling to your inbox.
It will bootstrap and elevate your security knowledge and threat modeling skills.
What you will learn
In this threat modeling course, our experienced trainer will teach you how to use threat modeling in your current development practice.
You will learn the basics of threat modeling and to understand what you are building, how to identify threats using the STRIDE method and how to address each threat. Comprehensive training material and hands-on workshops with real-world use cases will guide you through all aspects of threat modeling.
If you’ve followed this initial course and are hungry for more, we have an advanced threat modeling training available for you.
We have other training variations, like:
- Threat modeling training for medical device makers, together with MedCrypt
This course is all about getting you started with Whiteboard hacking or threat modeling as soon – and as effectively – as possible. We make your journey more convenient, with some interesting extras:
- our Whiteboard Hacking survival guide
- hand-outs of the presentations
- worksheets and detailed solution descriptions of the use cases
- 2 templates, one to document a threat model and one to calculate risk levels of identified threats
- a certification for successful completion of the course
Threat Modeling Playbook
You need a game plan to bootstrap or improve your threat modeling practice.
We will explain how to do this and will provide your with our Threat Modeling Playbook.
This playbook provides the main steps to establish a threat modeling practice for every type of organization or development team, regardless of your size and maturity level.
Stop shooting in the dark
Threat modeling – also called Architectural Risk Analysis – is an essential step in the development of your application. Without it, your protection is a shot in the dark. Download our whitepaper and discover how to do threat modeling right.
