Join us for XConf Unplugged: London

Talk: Secure Design with Threat Modelling

XConf Unplugged is a community for technologists. We'll keep you plugged in and up-to-date with breaking technology changes, updates and news. This event is the fourth in our series and is focused on security in software development.

No-one needs convincing that they need to write secure software and deal with their users' data responsibly anymore. But there's a steep learning curve on the topic of security, as the number (and profile) of threats seems to just keep climbing – everything from organised crime and government spying to teenagers who attack systems "for the lulz" – it can all be pretty overwhelming.

Threat Modelling provides a set of techniques that help you identify and address the most important threats in both design and in delivery. While only part of a strategy to stay ahead, when used in conjunction with other techniques in your secure software delivery lifecycle, Threat Modelling can help to keep your system secure.

XConf Unplugged is a part of Access ThoughtWorks - our learning community. Additionally, if you subscribe to Access ThoughtWorks by clicking the tick box, you will receive a monthly update in your inbox— it might be the first look at a piece of tech content, videos of ThoughtWorkers' talks, early access to our latest books, or reports, like the bi-annual Tech Radar. You will also get invites to the best events happening in your region — because communities are best when they have faces, and food.

Join us for an evening of learnings and discovery that can make a real impact on your daily work.

Please see a more detailed agenda below.
