Gotchas and problems you might hit

  • It’s best to have a group of people who share the same general risks, concerns, and threats. If that’s not possible, you’ll want to prepare for when different threat models are in the same room.

  • People might be intimidated by the term “threat model” and associate it with military terms. (Actually, it historically comes from software development!) Some trainers prefer to call this activity “assessing your risks” for this reason.

  • People might feel overwhelmed as they consider the five threat modeling questions.
