Threat modeling is a way of thinking about what can go wrong and how to prevent it. Instinctively, we all think this way in regard to our own personal security and safety. When it comes to building or evaluating information systems, we need to develop a similar mindset - a Threat Modeling Mindset.
- Understanding a system
- Identifying threats and vulnerabilities
- Determining mitigations
- Applying the mitigations through risk management
