A major UK public broadcaster has built an extensive in-house technology team numbering several hundred. This group develops the public-facing websites, mobile apps, online video platforms, and internal systems that enable the broadcaster to inform, educate, and entertain millions worldwide.
With massive reach comes great responsibility to safeguard user data and ensure service continuity. To bolster its cybersecurity defenses, the broadcaster's technical leadership partnered with JBI for an intensive 2-day customised threat modeling training bootcamp.
The broadcaster's external-facing properties like news and TV catch-up sites face threats from bad actors worldwide. Meanwhile, internal tools contain sensitive employee and customer data attractive to criminals.
The technology team builds systems resilient to outages and demand spikes. However, their rapid iteration on public sites and internal platforms posed security risks. Developers lacked consistency in how they evaluated and addressed vulnerabilities.
The broadcaster needed to adopt standardized threat modeling practices across its hundreds of technologists. But generic training failed to provide suitable context aligned with their stack and use cases.
JBI collaborated closely with broadcaster leadership to deeply understand their environment, codebase and team skills. They designed an intensive 2-day bootcamp focused on immediately transferable threat modeling knowledge.
JBI's expert instructor guided participants through:
Each module featured hands-on labs based on real-world examples drawn from the broadcaster's stack. Breakout rooms enabled collaborative analysis and mitigation planning for sample vulnerabilities.
The curriculum balancing concepts with concrete application equipped attendees to apply threat modeling to current projects. Participants praised the tailored focus and expert instructor able to answer system-specific questions.
Feedback from attendees highlighted how much they learned in just 2 days:
By partnering with JBI, the broadcaster enhanced protections for its millions of viewers worldwide. Developers are already applying threat modeling learnings to secure public websites and internal platforms.
The customized bootcamp delivered immediate results by aligning tightly with the broadcaster's stack, use cases and skills needs. Attendees emerged better equipped to identify and address platform vulnerabilities.
This case study demonstrates JBI's proven approach helping technical organizations strengthen defenses through targeted training. JBI built another success story by deeply understanding the client's environment before designing high-impact, context-specific instruction.
