Threat Modeling a SharePoint Application

Threat Modeling a SharePoint Application: An exploratory exercise in preventing data breaches and theft

By Tony Graves SharePoint Developer and Consultant​

Threat Modeling Book Cover.jpg 

Threat modeling is about using models to find security problems. Using a model means abstracting away a lot of details to provide a look at a bigger picture, rather than the code itself. You model because it enables you to find issues in things you haven’t built yet, and because it enables you to catch a problem before it starts.

Threat Modeling can be applied to software you’re building or deploying, or software you’re considering acquiring. Building a SharePoint Solution or website is no different. Here is a brief guide on how to build a minimum threshold for your organization in a SharePoint environment.

Not all content holds the same value for an organization. Some content is transitory and will only provide value for a short time, while other content serves as official records, preserving evidence for a transaction or decision making tool such as eDiscovery.

Based on the book, "Threat Modeling: Designing for Security" the only security book to be chosen as a Dr. Dobbs Jolt Award Finalist since Bruce Schneier's Secrets and Lies and Applied Cryptography!

Unconventional Strategies for Reinventing Your Career

 Working Identity
Do you want to jump start your career? This book is a must read!

This book explores how career transitions are not a linear progression of steps taken to achieve the desired change. Instead it is a series of incremental beeline changes one brings into action by self intuition, risk taking and deep reflection.

The author explores the idea of Identities in transition – the idea is summed up as follows:

“We like to think that we can leap directly from desire for change to a single decision that will complete our reinvention. As a result, we remain na├»ve about the long, essential testing period when our actions transform or (fail to transform) fuzzy, undefined possibilities into concrete choices we can evaluate.”
