Threat Modelling

Start with a 40,000ft view of your environment.

Threat modelling is a structured approach to identifying, evaluating, and addressing potential security threats to your systems and applications. Using the STRIDE framework, we systematically analyse your environment to uncover vulnerabilities and design robust security measures. STRIDE stands for Spoofing, Tampering, Repudiation, Information Disclosure, Denial of Service, and Elevation of Privilege – the six categories of threats we evaluate to ensure comprehensive protection.

The STRIDE Framework Explained

Spoofing

We identify threats where attackers might spoof user identities or systems to gain unauthorised access. Our analysis includes evaluating authentication mechanisms and identifying potential spoofing vulnerabilities.

Tampering

We assess the risk of data tampering, where attackers might alter data in transit or at rest. Our evaluation includes analysing data integrity controls and identifying areas where tampering could occur.

Repudiation

We examine the potential for repudiation threats, where users might deny their actions or transactions. Our analysis includes evaluating logging and auditing mechanisms to ensure accountability and traceability.

Information Disclosure

We identify risks of information disclosure, where sensitive data might be exposed to unauthorized parties. Our evaluation includes analyzing data protection measures and identifying potential disclosure points.

Denial of Service (DoS)

We assess the risk of denial of service attacks, where attackers might disrupt the availability of your systems or applications. Our analysis includes evaluating resilience and redundancy measures to mitigate DoS threats.

Elevation of Privilege

We identify threats where attackers might elevate their privileges to gain unauthorised access to sensitive data or systems. Our evaluation includes analysing access control mechanisms and identifying potential privilege escalation paths.

Benefits of Threat Modelling
