Isaiah Sarju is currently simulating advanced persistent threats. He’s also a photographer and information security speaker. He loves freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
Isaiah has used online dating sites such as Tinder and OkCupid. At times this seems antithetical to his stance on privacy and security. To better understand the security ramifications of online dating, and to establish safer methods of doing it, he applied threat modeling to online dating. Through this he came up with a set of best practices depending on your threat model. This talk is relevant for anyone who is trying to balance privacy/security and a desire for human connection in this modern world. Due to the real and perceived dangers of online dating, the stigma that surrounds it, and the pervasiveness of it, it is a great lens through which folks can be introduced to the core principles of threat modeling. It also makes it fun to talk about!
