Threat Modeling

Threat modeling is a process to identify security weaknesses in software design and architecture. In this path, you will explore five courses, starting with a background and top-level view of threat modeling. The second course will describe three core security frameworks that can be used with threat modeling to find threats and mitigations. The third course covers the “moving parts,” or elements of a threat model and their relationship with each other. The fourth course covers the basics of threat modeling, the fifth course introduces secure agile architecture concepts, and the sixth is a lab bringing it all together.
