SEVEN things about API security

APIs are everywhere, but API security is a disaster. Stories of API security breaches seem to be just another news cycle away, shining a harsh spotlight on the ease of API abuse and the complexities of robust API security.


In this session, we use real-world cases to dive into best practices for securing your APIs. We dive into FOUR crucial vulnerabilities highlighted in the OWASP API Security top 10, exposing the areas you need to safeguard against. But we don't stop there. We also bring the threats to life with ONE demo, providing a practical look at how these vulnerabilities can be exploited. Lastly, we'll discuss TWO real-world case studies, where you'll see how even high-profile organizations can fall victim to these weaknesses. At the end of this session, you will have an actionable set of guidelines to assess and improve the security of your own APIs.
