CSO Webinar: Underestimating Threats to APIs - Are you at risk?

Presented by

CSO ASEAN | Akamai

About this talk

As businesses increasingly adopt application programming interfaces (APIs) to drive digital transformation, threat actors are correspondingly finding them attractive vectors for data exfiltration. APIs can quickly become vulnerable risk surfaces, exposing data to application-level attacks against which conventional security defenses may not be very effective. As more organizations begin to weave a complex web of APIs, a single infiltrated API may snowball into breaches of connected systems – eventually resulting in business disruption. How can cybersecurity teams more effectively protect business-critical APIs without hindering innovation? What are some commonly overlooked vulnerabilities in API security? This CSO webinar, in association with Akamai, will outline the state of API security across Southeast Asia, documenting key business challenges while outlining areas of best practice. Key Discussion Points Include: - Understanding why API security needs to be a critical dimension of a data security strategy - Exploring the most common security threats for API traffic - Sharing challenges when detecting and investigating threats in APIs - Outlining strategies for identifying vulnerabilities / Sharing common blind spots in threat detection - Exploring best practices in API security
