Certain processes are so essential to society that failure or disruption would lead to serious social disruption and poses a threat to the national security. These processes form a country vital infrastructure. Electricity, water supply, payment industry, electronic communication and certain high tech companies are examples of vital processes.
This threat modeling course is specifically aimed at personnel of organizations that work in these vital processes. Due to the fast changing landscape and the ever increasing digital security risks, Secura feels that threat modeling can be very useful to stay in control of security, while still retaining the flexibility to improve and change. Therefore, this course is specifically aimed to train personnel working in these sectors.
Required Skills & Expertise
This course is aimed at both people with a technical background as well as policy makers. Understanding of basic data flow diagrams and security concepts is required. No existing knowledge of threat modeling is required during the training course.
The duration of this training course is 1 day.
- Understand when and how to do threat modeling
- Learn about the four step threat modeling process that can be used to structurally perform threat modeling (creating a diagram, identifying the threats, mitigating and validating the threats).
- Learn how to create complete, validated Data Flow Diagrams (DFD’s) that can be used as a basis for the threat modeling session (for an example, see the appendix).
- Learn how to use a threat modeling session to identify the threats that are applicable to the web application, mobile application, infrastructure or other component that is being threat modelled. The attendees will be introduced to different ways to identify threats, such as STRIDE, attack trees and attack libraries. The course will focus on identifying threats using STRIDE. For an example of an attack tree, see the appendix.
- Learn how to structurally address the identified threats, to mitigate the threats that have been identified in the previous step
- Learn to validate the implemented mitigation, to make sure the implemented mitigation solves the threat completely and does not introduce any new threats.
- Learn how to implement threat modeling within the existing development process such as the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle.
- Learn how to lead and organise efficient threat modeling sessions, to make sure the threat modeling session gets the wanted results.
