Threat Modeling

Maximize Security Resources with Threat Modeling

Threat modeling is an approach to enterprise network security that lets you optimize resources and maximize security by prioritizing the resources and programs required to keep your organization secure.

As an iterative process, threat modeling assesses and quantifies vulnerabilities according to their potential for damage to the organization, and identifies the most effective information security solutions that can be deployed to mitigate them, along with recommendations for how to focus resources to provide the most protection.

Threat modeling is a highly complex endeavor, especially as the threat landscape continues to become more sophisticated by the day. The security experts who engage in threat modeling must not only understand all of the risks large and small that face the organization, but must be familiar with the latest technologies and strategies that can defend against them.

When you want a partner to develop an effective threat modeling program, the seasoned security professionals at Optiv offer unparalleled expertise and unsurpassed experience in all aspects of IT security.
