Threat modeling is proactive security. One wouldn’t build a house then call in people to test its security, only to be told that locks are needed on doors and windows. Likewise, a threat model for cybersecurity anticipates threats to the system and directs teams to build risk mitigation into the design of the code, eliminating potential attack vectors an adversary could use.
With threat modeling, organizations can significantly reduce vulnerabilities when developing applications, thereby improving software security. But, organizations face many challenges with traditional threat modeling as it doesn't scale.
