Threat modeling is a technique for developing secure systems using a risk-based approach. Threats are identified and controls constructed to mitigate these as an integrated part of the development process rather than being an afterthought.
Threat modeling works by breaking down the problem of adequate system security into smaller and more manageable components that can be more easily secured. Using an organized framework for achieving this process will facilitate a deterministic approach to solving the problem. WCS uses the STRIDE model to manage threat modeling.
WCS’s experts are adept at seamlessly integrating into a client’s development team to provide expert advice on an ongoing and as required basis to ensure security is built into the foundations of any system or application. This approach offers significant efficiency savings when compared to bolting security controls onto a finished product and delivers a far more secure and maintainable solution.
This technique will significantly reduce the risk of critical vulnerabilities materializing at the production stage of a product where remediation costs will be exponentially higher when compared to implementing security by design in the earlier stages of the development life cycle.
