or Whiteboard Hacking training
Our threat modeling courses are aimed at software developers, architects, system managers, and security professionals. We organise our trainings in-house on-demand, in open sessions, at conferences and now also online.
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.
Threat modeling consists of workshops where you examine an application or system together with business and IT owners. You draw diagrams in order to detect security problems based on credible attack vectors.
We follow the STRIDE methodology as developed by Adam Shostack and have developed a practical training course to turn YOU into a great threat modeler.
Our monthly “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.
Previous editions include guest content from Adam Shostack, Bruce Schneier and Geoff Hill, and practical tips such as which diagramming tools to use.
What you will learn
In this 2-day 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.
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
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.
