About this talk

APIs make up the fabric of the financial services industry - they bridge the customer to the product. However, according to recent research by Akamai, as of June 2022, there have been over 9 billion web application and API attacks across the globe. This is three times more than we saw in 2021. Given the value of APIs to the modern organisation, it’s no wonder that they have become a pathway for attackers to infiltrate the network. This talk will cover lessons learned from analysing data across our platform and customers’ best practices. Leaders must act now to ensure security is consistent and applied across their entire estate, including web apps and APIs. But what can you do specifically to secure your APIs and how has digital transformation impacted API security? Join us in the third and final episode of Actionable Insights from Akamai as we discuss: - Best practices for securing your APIs - How to leverage the cyber kill chain to evaluate your API risks - Insights from global Threat Intelligence to enhance your API protection - And much more!
