About this talk

Nearly every modern application built today uses an API or is an API itself. The growth of APIs is increasing at an explosive rate or more that 60% YoY (DevOps Digest). According to Gartner, by 2021, 90% of web-enabled applications will have more attack surface area in exposed APIs than in the user interface (UI). Gartner also predicts that by 2022, API abuses will be the most-frequent cyber-attack vector. Matt Tesauro, a 13-year project lead at the OWASP Foundation and leading DevSecOps and Security Automation advocate, will take you through why API Security is different from other traditional AppSec, who plays a role in securing APIs, and how to evaluate the state of your API Security. Matt will be joined by Mark Campbell, Sr. Director of Product Marketing at Noname Security. Mark will moderate this discussion. Watch this webinar to learn: • How API Security is different from the “normal” application security • API Security Fundamentals • Why API Security is hard but new tools are out there • Who needs to be involved in your API Security strategy • How to get started: A Getting Starting Checklist with 6 Steps to API Security
