Title: Transforming Threat Modeling: Harnessing ChatGPT for Automated Security Analysis

Abstract: Traditional manual threat modeling is resource-intensive. This talk explores a game-changing approach using ChatGPT, an advanced language model, to automate and enhance threat modeling. Attendees will understand ChatGPT’s potential in revolutionizing cybersecurity processes.

Session Highlights:

  1. Introduction to ChatGPT: Uncover the versatility of advanced language models in cybersecurity. Explore their applications in threat modeling.
  2. Automating Threat Modeling: Learn how ChatGPT streamlines threat modeling, increasing efficiency by reducing manual efforts.
  3. Generating Dynamic Threat Models: See how ChatGPT assists in crafting threat models from system architecture, user stories, and design documents.
  4. Elevating Accuracy and Scope: Discuss techniques for refining accuracy and coverage of automated threat models generated by ChatGPT.
  5. Integration and Synergy: Explore seamless integration of automated threat modeling into existing security processes. Understand how collaboration between AI systems and security professionals can be encouraged.

Key Takeaway: Attendees gain insights into leveraging ChatGPT for efficient threat modeling, enabling organizations to identify and mitigate security risks effectively.
