Shining a Spotlight on API Blind Spots

APIs help enable business growth and are the connective tissue that powers digital transformation. However, widespread adoption leads to blind spots that are quickly becoming the biggest security problem for today’s businesses. Since the vast amounts of data carried by APIs make them ideal targets in data breaches, what are the critical trends and best practices CISOs need to know to protect the enterprise?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Identifying latest trends and common issues in API security protocols
  • Benchmarking your API strategy and risk exposure
  • Educating the organization on common abuse cases and best practices
