Threat Modeling Revolutionizes Cybersecurity

Threat modeling enables organizations to understand their attack surface and various paths to exploit a system. Organizations are able to prioritize their mitigation strategy and identify the right controls that can be implemented to prevent a data breach.

Threat modeling enables

  1. Allow security and development teams to pinpoint high-value targets (assets) and data exposure early in the design phase – before applications are moved to production.
  2. Promote the use of secure code, enforcing standards organization-wide.
  3. Enable pen testers to focus on the most critical entry points in applications.
  4. Generate reports and checklists to validate that proper security controls are in place to meet compliance objectives.
