Threat modeling is one of the most essential—and most misunderstood—parts of the development lifecycle. Whether you’re a security practitioner or application developer, this book will help you gain a better understanding of core concepts and how to apply them to your practice to protect your systems from threats.
Authors Izar Tarandach and Matthew Coles walk you through the myriad ways to approach and execute threat modeling. Contrary to popular belief, the process takes neither incredibly advanced security knowledge nor an unmanageable amount of effort. But it’s critical for spotting and addressing potential concerns in a cost-effective way before the code’s written and it’s too late to find a solution.
- Find out why threat modeling is important and how it can make you and your team better, more well-rounded architects and developers
- Learn the most effective ways to integrate threat modeling into your development lifecycle
