Persona-based security and threat-modeling
Wednesday June 15, 14:00 - 15:30
The session will include a presentation about persona-based security leading to persona-based threat modeling. If time permits a small exercise would be held to do a persona-based organizational threat model.
A “persona” represents a group of people with similar characteristics. This concept has traditionally been used in sectors such as marketing and design to provide a tailored experience for their target audience. Exploring the possibilities of porting this concept to information security is an interesting and worthwhile endeavor.
In this session, we will explore the details of what personas mean, how to work with them in a security context and apply them for example in threat modeling.

Organizational security professionals, senior managers, researchers, threat modelers
General threat modeling, basic understanding of risk, understanding of role-based models like RBAC a plus
Expert Security Architect, AXA Climate
I have been in security for quite a long time starting my security journey in web application security, moving to malware analysis and reverse engineering, then worked on information flow control for browser compilers during my PhD, went on to red teaming, followed by being a researcher in a very unique team of experts and presently work as the expert security architect. All these experiences have been invaluable in shaping who I am today. I believe in security experts needing to have programming skills. Seeking enriching conversations in security is a personal passion.

Hands-on threat modeling
One-day workshop by Sebastien Deleersnyder
This is a Threat Modeling course for DevOps Engineers to improve reliability and security of delivered software. We will teach an iterative and incremental threat modeling method.
You will perform threat modeling in 4 sprints. Exercises are built upon a fictional system, migrating a legacy system towards a cloud application:
- Modeling a hotel booking web and mobile application, sharing a REST backend
- Threat identification as part of migrating the system to AWS
- AWS threat mitigations for the booking system build on microservices
- Building an attack library for CI/CD pipelines

Enterprise security architecture and app development
Lecture by Stefaan Van daele
Developing secure code is a good start, but what more could you do from security point of view? This session puts secure application development in the context of an Enterprise Security Architecture model and illustrates how these two processes interact.

Level up your threat modeling practice
Lecture by Sebastien Deleersnyder
We pulled together our threat modeling vision and strategy with OWASP best practices to create a 'Threat Modeling Playbook'. It shows you how to turn threat modelling into an established, reliable practice.
