Creating an overview of your organisation’s security (Copenhagen)



Creating an overview of your organisation’s security (Copenhagen)

As organisations grow ever more complex, securing them becomes increasingly difficult. Therefore, a holistic approach is needed, taking into account the entire landscape of physical devices, software components, and human actors.

At this workshop, we will be introducing Attack Navigator – a tool for mapping your organisation, not only uncovering security issues, but also creating a better overview of the organisation itself. Attack Navigator is a graph-based approach to security risk assessment inspired by navigation systems. The tool is very simple and intuitive to use, which makes it a suitable tool for various organisational functions – technical people and others alike. It includes modelling tools for systems and attacks, and evaluation techniques to derive quantitative security properties of the models.

Join us for this workshop, where you will get insights into modelling, evaluating, and improving the security of organisations. You will also get hands-on experience with the presented techniques.

Zaruhi Aslanyan is a security architect at the Alexandra Institute, specialised in graphical models for security and their analysis.

Christian W. Probst is a member of the cyber security section at DTU Compute. In his research, Christian combines modelling and analysis techniques to develop systems with guaranteed properties.

Everyone can participate – no technical skill or prior knowledge about risk assessment is necessary. The workshop will be held in English.
