How to take your first steps in threat modelling, or an opportunity to extend and/or reorient an existing threat modelling programme.

Systems created by humans will contain flaws. In order to shine a light on these flaws, you can use a technique called threat modelling. There are hundreds if not thousands of different threat modelling methods that can be used to tease apart the structure of a system in search for security issues. In this talk, we will cover the key principles behind these methods, enabling anyone to study and mend the architecture of a system. In covering the basics, we will also critically reflect on the direction of much research and practice, sketching the relevance of threat modelling for addressing contemporary challenges and highlighting the role that you can play in making a security impact.
