API Security: When Failure looks like Success

Presented by

Keith Casey

About this talk

APIs have become fundamental to our teams. While we’d like to believe it was a carefully executed plan, let’s be honest - there’s as much luck as foresight in the mix. Luckily, success drives success so it's worked. Unfortunately, that success has cost us. APIs have become a devastating attack vector for apps that store everything from financial records to passport information to your dating interests. In this session, we’ll reconsider some of our earliest assumptions and lay out some strategies for bringing our APIs out of the shadows and protecting ourselves, our partners, and our customers.
