Where Are You in Your API Security Journey?
Doug Olenick – Executive Editor, ISMG / Roey Eliyahu – Co-Founder & CEO, Salt Security
Applications have evolved in the way they are developed, delivered and consumed. In recent years, APIs have become a core component of these modern applications and a driving force behind digital transformation. As a result, attackers have shifted their focus to target APIs in cloud, mobile and web applications so much so that Gartner predicts that by 2022 APIs will become the most-frequent attack vector targeted by malicious actors.
How concerned should you be about API attacks? Is API security on the radar of your CIO, CTO and CRO? How well do you know each threat in the new OWASP API Security Top 10? Is there a risk of shadow APIs being deployed by your developers?
Please join ISMG’s Doug Olenick for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they are rising to meet the challenges of securing APIs that are fueling innovation and driving digital transformation.
Discussion topics will include:
- Where is API security on your priority list?
- What is your approach to API security?
- Do you think your WAF or API management provides sufficient protection against API threats?
- How do you work with development teams to improve API security?
Joining Doug to provide expert insight and case studies is Roey Eliyahu, Co-Founder & CEO at Salt Security.
