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.

Why?

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.
