BSides Columbus Ohio 2019

Isaiah Sarju 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.

Isaiah Sarju is a red teamer. He has contributed to the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report, conducted numerous penetration/red team engagements, and taught students how to become top tier defenders. He plays tabletop games, swims, and trains Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
