Threat Simulation and Modeling Training

Threat Simulation and Modeling Training Course Description

Threat simulation and modeling training teaches you the various types of threat modeling techniques and helps you to apply threat modeling as an advanced preventive form of security. TONEX as a leader in security industry for more than 15 years is now announcing the threat simulation and modeling training which helps you to recognize methodologies, tools and case studies of successful threat modeling technique.

Threat Simulation and Modeling Training course covers a variety of topics in cybersecurity area such as: process for attack simulation and threat analysis (PASTA), PASTA steps, common attack patter enumeration and classification (CAPEC), threat modeling with SDLC, and existing threat modeling approaches. Moreover, you will be introduced to threat analysis, weakens and vulnerability analysis, attack modeling and simulation, and residual risk analysis and management.

By taking the threat simulation and modeling training by TONEX, you will learn about the main concepts in threat modeling, application threats, software development life cycle (SDLC), and common types of threats.

Threat simulation and modeling training course introduces different techniques of threat modeling which you may apply to your own products to ensure the security, or develop more secure environment for your software product.

Learn About:

  • PASTA, objectives of risk analysis, risk centric threat modeling, and weakness and vulnerability analysis basics.
  • Common attack pattern enumeration such as: HTTP response splitting, SQL injection, XSS strings, phishing, buffer overflow, authentication protocol attacks or even cache poisoning.
  • Threat analysis approaches and principles to give you the step by step straight forward methodology to conduct the threat modeling and analysis. Moreover, a detailed introduction of existing threat modeling approaches are included in the course. Examples of such approaches can be: CVSS, CERT, DREAD, and SDL threat modeling.

Who Can Benefit from Threat Simulation and Modeling Training

If you are an IT professional who specialize in computer security, you will benefit the presentations, examples, case studies, discussions, and individual activities upon the completion of threat simulation and modeling training and will prepare yourself for your career.

Threat Simulation and Modeling Training Features 

Threat simulation and modeling training will introduce a set of labs, workshops and group activities of real world case studies in order to prepare you to tackle all the related computer threat challenges.
