The number of vulnerabilities identified in software products has risen by 376 percent in the past ten years, reaching a record high of over 25,000 in 2022. Considering that enterprises worldwide require between 180 and 290 days on average to patch security vulnerabilities, organizations have recognized the importance of taking a proactive approach to security — specifically, the value of designing secure software.
Designing secure software offers a wide range of benefits, from lowering the number of human hours spent fixing security vulnerabilities in production to limiting financial losses and regulatory penalties, thus gaining a competitive advantage and increasing customer loyalty.
Threat modeling is a crucial component of the "Secure by Design" guiding principles. This Refcard will provide the key fundamentals of threat modeling, core practices for secure implementation (including crucial approaches and methodologies), and key elements
of conducting successful threat model reviews. It will also explore the significance of modern tools for automating and streamlining threat modeling processes, improving the accuracy of findings, and facilitating integration and collaboration among software and security teams throughout the software development lifecycle.
