About the Topic


"Threat Modeling:  Own Your System"

What if you could see your system from an attacker’s perspective – see him planning and deliberating his attack before actually launching it? With threat modeling you can! Threat modeling helps designers and developers model the system as an attacker would.


Join the Foundstone security experts as they share their experiences and methods used to perform Threat Modeling on some of the largest and most complex systems built. Attendees will learn the methodology and how to integrate it into their software development lifecycle. By playing attacker instead of being attacked, see how Threat Modeling can help save costs and eliminate the pain of security disclosures.
