About this talk

Application Security for Billions: Lessons Learned from Securing Web Apps and APIs at Internet Scale Whenever you hear people talking about web and application security, you’ll often learn about the latest way to make sure you’re not ingesting user supplied input the wrong way, or how to write secure code to prevent cross site scripting, etc. But, have you ever wondered what it’s like to secure business critical websites, and the ever-evolving growth of API’s and bespoke applications that are developed every day across thousands of websites in dozens of countries around the world? In this webinar, Tony Lauro, Akamai’s Security Technology and Strategy Director, will cover: - What defenders are doing at scale to defend the evolving threats targeting websites - Methods for cutting out the noise of benign, but annoying vulnerability verification requests - Best practices for managing large scale security configurations - Some of the ways that defenders are winning against these unimaginable odds, as well as how attackers are targeting these very same applications hoping to bypass security by obscuring their attack techniques
