Let’s look at a possible real-world scenario and how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plays into it. In this scenario, the United States was hit by a large-scale, coordinated cyber attack organized by foreign entity. Lessons learned indicated that DHS was not utilizing any threat modeling strategies and would like to get discussion started immediately to better understand what it is. You are brought in and need to provide the following to DHS:
1. What is threat modeling?
2. How can threat modeling help protect key assets (this could be information, infrastructure, personnel, etc) going forward?
3. What should the next steps be for DHS now that they have a better understanding?
You must do the following:
1) Create a new thread. As indicated above, please answers the three questions above for DHS described in the preceding paragraph. Must use a minimum of three references for your initial posts. Also, please cite all references and use proper APA formatting.
