Efficiently scale the building of new threat models across the full production portfolio
Efficiency and Scale with Threat Model Templates
Working with a traditional, manual threat modeling process invariably means building each threat model from scratch – an inefficient use of resources at best. However, in today’s high-speed agile and DevOps IT environments where rapid code and system changes are common, a manual threat modeling process that cannot keep pace with development or changes in the IT environment can leave organizations with an increasing risk profile and a growing open threat portfolio. The answer is threat model templates.
Modern applications and systems are inherently built with oft-used, vetted components. As a result, most of the applications in an organization have overlapping features and functionality. Threat modeling efficiency can be gained from building and saving reusable snippets – portions of threat models corresponding to the frequently used application and system components saved as templates. New threat models can be built with substantial time and resource savings when the common features and functionality are draw from a library of templates.
Threat Model Templates – Reusability and Efficiency
Threat model templates enable architects, developers, and security analysts to take commonly used threat models and save them as templates. They can then be reused, in some cases with minor adaptations, as a foundation for creating new threat models. Leveraging pre-defined templates introduces efficiencies into the threat modeling process and reduces the time and effort required to build new threat models. The templates can be used to enforce pre-defined architecture and specifications for hardened components.
