Threat Modeling is useful to find design issues even before you’ve written a line of code, and that’s the best time to find those issues but… What can we learn doing a post-mortem of a security incident?


Many interesting questions may arise:

  • The vulnerabilities that were exploited during the breach were identified as a use case of any Threat?
  • Were there some countermeasures or security requirements that didn’t worked as expected?

Open discussion: How can we improve our Threat Modeling using a post-mortem of a Security Incident?


This Working Session will publish a document (white paper) gathering the conclussions.
