Visual threats and countermeasures are quick visual representations of hot spots for threats, attacks, vulnerabilities and countermeasures. Whether you use a whiteboard, Visio or piece of papter, you can depict your application or subsystem, along with the deployment scenario or usage scenarios, and then overaly key threats/attacks, vulnerabilities and countermeasures. This helps to quickly communicate the areas that you care about among your team as well as help you "think on paper." Here are some examples.
