Today we are going to be talking about - OWASP Threat Dragon - and our guests are Mike Goodwin, the founder, and Jon Gadsden, a major contributor to the project. 

Threat Dragon is a popular, free tool used for threat modeling, including diagramming, threat identification, mitigation and report generation. 

Mike is the VP of Product Security and Architecture and Technical Fellow at Sage Software - a FTSE100 company providing accounting, payroll and HR software to businesses in 23 countries worldwide. After short careers as an academic and then as a nuclear engineer, Mike settled into software development about 20 years ago working for a startup, a government corporation and now the UKs largest tech company. After developing an interest in security during a large cloud migration project, Mike moved to a full-time security role six years ago to help build Sage's AppSec program.

Jon is a software engineer with ForgeRock in Bristol, a company that provides Identity and Access Management services. Jon splits his time between security engineering and embedded C/C++ development - he says that he likes it this way because it reminds him that developers are under time pressure and that security engineers require a whole load of tact. Jon has been involved with the open source software community since Linux 2.0.28, and his latest project is helping with Cupcake's OWASP Threat Modeling project.
