Help Launch “Threats: What Every Engineer Should Learn From Star Wars”
How to help with the launch
Thank you for asking how to help with my book launch.
After years of working on this book, I'm finally ready to spread the word about it, and would love your help on [insert date here]. Whatever you'd like to do is great. If you're looking for ideas, this page offers some, along with words you can use or adapt, the one best link, the cover, and more.
Anyone can learn to threat model, and what's more, everyone should. Threat modeling is an essential skill for those creating technology of all sorts, and until now, it's been too hard to learn. Threat Modeling: Designing for Security makes threat modeling accessible to developers, systems architects or operators, and helps security professionals make sense of the advice they've gotten over the years.
Finding security bugs after your code has shipped stinks, and so does finding them as you're getting ready to ship. You want to find them early, but until now, threat modeling has been too scary, too process heavy, too hard to connect to the rest of how you ship, or just didn't give you enough bang for the buck. That changes now.
How to help on [date]:
- Set a schedule reminder for one or more of the following (Calendar appointment)
- Buy the book from Amazon, Wiley, or my local technical bookstore, Ada's Technical books
- Email your coworkers, professional friends or those would would benefit from more security, letting them know about the book and (optionally) why you think it's important to them.
- Spread the word on Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook or IRC.
- Let people know about the sample chapter
Sample text for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or email
If you’re unsure what to say, you can use any of these, or use them as a starting point:
- If you enjoyed the Elevation of Privilege card game, the creator just released a book
- Get it today: Threat Modeling: Designing for Security is now out -- looks like an important book!
- Threat modeling isn't just for security mavens anymore: eveyone in tech should read
- I’m excited to see Adam Shostack has a new book out
- Tired of security bugs messing up your ship schedule?
