More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security.
In this session, we will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. We will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
You will learn:
- Vulnerabilities that can expose APIs to be exploited.
