As delusions of effective risk management for application environments continue to spread, companies continue to bleed large amounts of security spending without truly knowing if the amount is warranted, effective, or even elevating security at all. In parallel, hybrid, thought-provoking security strategies are moving beyond conceptual ideas to practical applications within ripe environments. Application Threat Modeling is one of those areas that, beyond the hype, provides practical and sensible security strategy that leverages already existing security efforts for an improved threat model of what is lurking in the shadows.
