Workshop

API Security Best Practices and Guidelines

Flag

Orlando, FL

Tuesday, November 19 | 9.00 am to 1.30 pm
Venue - DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Downtown, 60 S. Ivanhoe Blvd, Orlando, FL 32804.

Modern enterprises are increasingly adopting APIs, exceeding all predictions. With more businesses investing in microservices and the increase in consumption of cloud APIs, you need to secure beyond just a handful of well-known APIs. It brings with it a lot more internal and external endpoints that need to be secured.

At the same time, security itself is a broad area and vendors implement a number of seemingly similar standards and patterns, making it very difficult for consumers to settle on what’s best in terms of API security. The vast number of options can be very confusing.

There is much to learn about API security, regardless of whether you are a novice or expert and it’s extremely important that you do, because security is an integral part of any development project, including API ecosystems.

Who should attend

Enterprise, Product and Solution Architects, Full Stack Developers, IAM architects

What you will learn,
