  • Adam Shostack's Threat Modeling Intensive - 2 Day Training

  • This hands-on, interactive class will focus on learning to threat model by executing each of the steps. Students will start with a guided threat modeling exercise, and we'll then iterate and break down the skills they're learning in more depth. We'll progressing through the Four Questions of Threat Modeling- what are we working on, what can go wrong, what are we going to do about it and did we do a good job. This is capped off with an end-to-end exercise that brings the skills together.

  • Building a High-Value AppSec Scanning Programme - 2 Day Training

  • You bought the application security tools, you have the findings, but now what? Many organisations find themselves drowning in “possible vulnerabilities”, struggling to streamline their processes and not sure how to measure their progress.

    If you are involved in using SAST, DAST or SCA tools in your organisation, these may be familiar feelings to you. In this course you will learn how to address these problems and more (in a vendor-neutral way), with topics including the following:

    • What to expect from these tools?
    • Customising and optimising these tools effectively
    • Building tool processes which fit your business
    • Automating workflows using CI/CD without slowing it down
    • Showing the value and improvements you are making
    • Faster and easier triage through smart filtering
    • How to focus on fixing what matters and cut down noise
    • Techniques for various alternative forms of remediation
    • Comparison of the different tool types covered

    To bring the course to life and let you apply what you learn, you will work in teams on table-top exercises where you design processes to cover specific scenarios, explain and justify your decisions to simulated stakeholders and practice prioritising your remediation efforts.

    For these exercises, you will work based on specially designed process templates (which we will provide) which you can use afterwards to apply these improvements within your own organisation.

    Be ready to work in a group, take part in discussions and present your findings and leave the course with clear strategies and ideas on how to get less stress and more value from these tools.

  • Intersectional Threat Modeling for Identifying, Ranking, and Mitigating Offline Threats, Risks, and Dangers - 1 Day Training

  • This workshop introduces a logic, methodology, and toolset for intersectional, risk-centric, attack-driven threat modeling, tailored to both technical (i.e., computer/network-based) and non-technical practitioners (e.g., journalists, human rights defenders). This approach focuses on promoting proactive harm reduction through a focus on the context-sensitive aspects of human, organizational, and networked digital systems. Backed by dozens of case studies and more than a decade of direct application, this session will help enumerate how ‘technical’ and ‘non-technical’ users can benefit from the logic and methods of threat modeling.

    Participants will be challenged to consider their own threat environment and to actively engage with the process through in-session brainstorming activities, risk assessments, and other illustrative exercises. This workshop does not require any technical know-how, but participants should come prepared to investigate and explore their own security challenges. Through a combination of traditional lecture, applied discussion, and hands-on activities participants will engage directly with the process of intersectional threat modeling.

  • Master AI Security - 1 Day Training

  • This training is a unique opportunity to become proficient in the intricate and rapidly evolving field of AI security.

    Soon, nearly every digital organization will be deploying systems that incorporate AI. This presents a significant challenge, regardless of whether you are an AppSec specialist, a developer, or a red teamer. What are your responsibilities? What constitutes the new AI attack surface, and what threats emerge from it? What measures can you take to mitigate these emerging risks?

    This one-day intensive training program will equip you with the knowledge to tackle these AI-related challenges effectively, enabling you to apply what you learn immediately. Starting with a foundational overview of AI, the course then delivers an exhaustive exploration of the distinctive vulnerabilities AI introduces, the possible attack vectors, and the most current strategies to counteract threats like prompt injection, data poisoning, model theft, evasion, and more. Through practical exercises, you will gain hands-on experience in enacting strong security measures, attacking AI systems, conducting threat modelling on AI, and targeted vulnerability assessments for AI applications.

    By day's end, you will possess a thorough comprehension of the core principles and techniques critical to strengthening AI systems. You will have gained practical insights and the confidence to implement cutting-edge AI security measures.

  • Practical Privacy by Design - Building Secure Applications that Respect Privacy 2-Day Training

  • Privacy is hot! Now is the time to embrace this in-demand skillset. Believe it or not, privacy will even strengthen your security posture. Join this course now to learn about privacy engineering essentials and practical privacy-by-design approaches. With the lessons we’ll teach you, you’ll be able to effectively integrate privacy in existing security practices!

    Consumers are becoming more privacy-aware and expect privacy-oriented products. Likewise, globally emerging data protection legislations are forcing companies to integrate a technical approach for privacy into system design. With ever higher demands for privacy engineering, privacy by design, privacy-respecting systems - and increasing impact from the lack thereof - security teams are hard pressed to keep up with these emerging requirements and often feel like there is a substantial and growing skills gap.

    Traditional security approaches do not typically focus on this aspect, leaving individuals at risk. Fortunately, privacy by design does not have to be difficult, and in fact, can be nicely aligned with secure design best practices. Incorporating privacy into security with a proactive approach is essential, and can even become a force multiplier for more secure systems!

    This interactive hands-on training will introduce you to common privacy goals, and how these often fail. You'll learn about core privacy engineering fundamentals and get hands-on experience identifying and tackling potential privacy gaps and weaknesses, by leveraging by-design approaches such as threat modeling. As privacy shouldn’t be tackled in isolation, you will learn how to build privacy into the core of the software design and development process, aligned with security practices, showing how to gain increased efficiency and effectiveness in both domains.

    The course will cover these main topics
  • Introduction to Privacy Essentials
  • Architectural data mapping
  • Tracing the functionality
  • Overview of Privacy Threat Modeling
  • Analyzing for Privacy Threats
  • Privacy controls and mitigation strategies
  • Putting it all together - Full Privacy Process

  • Each of these interactive modules will teach you both the technical skills and social aspects essential for successful privacy engineering, explain how they align with corresponding security practices, and highlight how these privacy skills can strengthen your security posture. With plenty of hands-on experience through a set of exercises, class discussions, and productive collaboration, you'll gain confidence to improve the privacy posture of your system using established design techniques, so you can take these practical skills back to your security practice.
