  1. A brief outline of RTMP as a great threat modeling methodology
  2. How to implement RTMP into an Agile-based development environment"

Outline

  • A brief outline of RTMP as a great threat modeling methodology
    •  It is based on sound, tested and quick steps for regular engineers to assess threats on a proposed software system and provide quick mitigations.
    •  It is based on the three principles of Consistency in data, Repeatability in steps and Measurability in outcomes. Threat models can be standardized easily and compared/contrasted.
  • How to implement RTMP into an Agile-based development environment
    • Why Security Champions are key to success
    • Where in the strategic business making does this fit
    • How to integrate threat model inputs and outputs effectively into a CI/CD 
  • What actions should be taken at the product/epic level and at the team/story/specification level
