API Security Best Practices and Guidelines

Modern enterprise and consumers are increasingly adopting APIs, exceeding all predictions. It has become the ‘coolest’ way of exposing business functionalities to the outside world. This increase means you need to be more aware of API security. Both public and private APIs need to be protected, monitored and managed. API security has evolved a lot in the last five years and the growth of standards has been exponential. By following best practices when securing APIs, you will be able to wade through the weeds and keep the bad guys away while reaping the internal and external benefits of developing APIs for your services. This workshop will guide you through the maze of API security options and share industry-leading best practices when designing APIs with rock-solid security.
