(Talk) Making Threat Modelling Fun and Easy

Getting developers to think more defensively about their code is sometimes difficult. And with impending deadlines, its almost impossible to get them to do any sort of threat modelling. In this session, Dana will walk attendees through exploring how to use basic data flow diagrams (DFD) and the Elevation of Privilege (EoP) card game to collect the basic information needed and then show how to transpose that into Microsoft’s next generation SDL Threat Modelling tool. Attendees should come prepared to play a few hands of EoP and learn how to have fun when threat modelling.
