Talk Description

I will share how I introduced threat modelling to my team and how it is being used within my company.

Within the talk people will hear the basic theory of threat modelling and also look at how we ran sessions, handle the vulnerabilities found and how I convinced people to try it - using my Threat Agents card game.

Finally, I will make the case that not only is threat modelling for everyone on your team but as testers, we can be ideal people to get involved.

What you’ll learn

By the end of this talk, you'll be able to:

  • A basic understanding of threat modelling
  • An idea of what threat modelling might be like "in real life"
  • The knowledge that it is something they can do and not just for security experts
Richard Adams's profile'

Richard Adams

Senior Quality Engineer

After my first full time job as a games tester, I've had a varied career from Gameplay Systems Designer to Software Engineer for security systems with a couple of roles in between. I've since returned to testing as I have a huge passion for testing and just love finding bugs! As well as being a Senior Test Engineer, I am also a Cyber Champion within my organisation. This means that I help drive good security practices and in particular I love getting the team involved in threat modelling. I also get free training on all things security! Out of work I love gaming and carrying on my interest in threat modelling, I have also created a card game called Threat Agents.
