Reduce API Security Risks with Automated and Continuous API Scanning

Presented by

Jeff Lawson, Director, Product Management, WhiteHat Security

About this talk

Digital businesses have widespread API usage that makes it easier for organizations to share data and integrate with customer applications. However, since APIs expose application logic and sensitive data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), APIs have increasingly become a target for attackers leading to many serious data breaches in recent past. Gartner estimates that by 2022, API abuse will become the most-frequent attack vector, resulting in data breaches for many organizations. How do we reduce the security risks associated with APIs? Test early. Test often. Test everything. Join this session to learn about: -Understand how the impact of sheer proliferation of APIs has changed a number of applications, the exposure of applications, and the constant change to your applications. -Types of API vulnerabilities that are the leading causes of API related data breaches. -How Sentinel Auto API is changing the game for dynamic testing of APIs by making it extremely easy to configure and integrate.
