Risk Centric Threat Modeling: Process for Attack Simulation and Threat AnalysisThis book introduces the Process for Attack Simulation & Threat Analysis (PASTA) threat modeling methodology. It provides an introduction to various types of application threat modeling and introduces a risk-centric methodology aimed at applying security countermeasures that are commensurate to the possible impact that could be sustained from defined threat models, vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and attack patterns.   This book describes how to apply application threat modeling as an advanced pr…

Essential Business Process ModelingTen years ago, groupware bundled with email and calendar applications helped track the flow of work from person to person within an organization. Workflow in today’s enterprise means more monitoring and orchestrating massive systems. A new technology called Business Process Management, or BPM, helps software architects and developers design, code, run, administer, and monitor complex network-based business processes. BPM replaces those sketchy flowchart diagrams that business analysts draw on w…
