About this talk

APIs are the primary mechanism for driving innovation and growth across the healthcare ecosystem. They facilitate the sharing of patient data while supporting appointment reservation platforms, access to lab test results, and patient-doctor communications. APIs are essential for regulatory requirements that give patients access to their own records. But with every opportunity comes challenges, and the volume and complexity of data that’s accessible and by whom, can have immense clinical and financial repercussions if the evolving threat landscape is not managed with appropriate security controls. Join Akamai leaders Giora Engel, VP of API Security, Steve Winterfeld, Advisory CISO and Carley Thornell, Healthcare & Life Sciences Industry Marketing Manager to discuss prioritizing API discovery, use cases, detecting abnormal access and abuse patterns, and how to keep patients – and their data – safe.
