What Challenges Come Along With Threat Modeling?
The biggest challenge people face when they begin threat modeling is understanding why they need to do it.
Because traditional threat modeling methodologies are relatively resource-intensive and time-consuming, companies often limit their scope to a single, isolated application. Although fewer threat models may seem less daunting, companies who limit themselves to just four or five threat models cannot develop a comprehensive understanding of their attack surface, which is the ultimate reason that the security team and CISO should invest in automated threat modeling in the first place.
Under the tight deadlines required in the fast-paced world of DevOps, threat modeling can be used to identify threats as applications are being created to produce a secure product. But a process with limited scope fails to provide the CISO with valuable information about the organization’s overall threat level or effectiveness of current security controls.
Reducing the attack surface should always be the goal, and threat modeling for a single application does not provide a big-picture view of security or enable the CISO to justify new budget requests that prioritize activities.
New threats to the attack surface are constantly introduced; threat modeling is the best way for organizations to be prepared to defend against them. Traditional processes, however, are too slow and resource-intensive to be used effectively in today’s fast-paced agile and DevOps environments.

5 Reasons Enterprises Should Consider a
Mature Threat Modeling Approach
- Empower your security and development teams to identify high-level threats or areas where data can be exposed early on, in the development phase - before they become a bigger problem.
- Enforce enterprise-wide security standards by actively disseminating and promoting the use of code with security built in.
- Focus penetration testing on the most critical entry points in applications, informed by the analysis and reporting of ThreatModeler.
- Easily create reports and checklists that ensure proper security controls are in place and meet objectives for compliance.
- Classify application threats by risk level and generate a prediction of the technical and business impact a successful attack could have.
