Adam Shostack joins Continuum Security’s board

 | Company, Continuum Blog, Social Actions

We at Continuum Security are absolutely delighted to announce that Adam Shostack has joined our Advisory Board.

Adam brings with him considerable experience and wealth of knowledge that dovetails perfectly with Continuum Security’s mission to bring security into the software design & development process through threat modeling.

Whilst at Microsoft, Adam was the lead designer on the Security Development Lifecycle Threat Modeling Tool. This was the first security tool to facilitate threat modeling for developers & architects. Earlier tools were designed to help security experts record their analysis. Adam created the “Elevation of Privilege” card game based on Microsoft’s mnemonic STRIDE threat model framework, designed as an easy entry point to threat modeling.

Adam is the author of the seminal book: Threat Modeling: Designing for Security – a comprehensive, actionable, real world framework on integrating threat modeling within the development lifecycle.

Adam is one of the preeminent threat modeling experts in the world. Coupled with our passion for security-centred design embodied in the IriusRisk Platform, we are thrilled by this partnership

About Us

Continuum Security is dedicated to building the tools you need to manage and test the security of your software. Security tools and processes have to be business enablers, not blockers; and they cannot slow down the speed of development. Our solutions integrate with the normal development workflow, so that security is truly built in and not bolted on.
Our IriusRisk Threat Modeling Platform is a single integrated console to easily create threat models and manage application security risk throughout the software development process.  If you’d like to hear more, please get in touch to arrange a demo.
