Attack Trees, Security Modeling for Agile Teams



Michael Brunton-Spall talks about Attack Trees, a new way of understanding how a system might be attacked and how to prioritize security measures to be implemented. He teaches us how to approach a system in a new way, how to think like an attacker, how to evaluate and rate the threats, and how to communicate it effectively to both the team as well as to traditional security practitioners.


Michael Brunton-Spall is an independent Cybersecurity consultant, working for the UK Government. He is a former Deputy Director with the Cabinet Office, where he headed up Technology and Operations for the Government Digital Service as well as being head of Cybersecurity.
