Threat modeling

Threat modeling in the context of cybersecurity is a systematic approach used to identify and evaluate potential threats and vulnerabilities in a system, application, or network. It involves analyzing the various components and interactions within a system to determine potential weaknesses that could be exploited by malicious actors.

The primary goal of threat modeling is to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks before they can be exploited. By understanding the threats and vulnerabilities present in a system, security measures can be implemented to strengthen its overall security posture.

Cybersecurity gamification
