We've reached tipping point with APIs today where they've become critical enabler of digital transformation for all companies. Examples include: enabled apps to interface with personal Facebook data, to access banking info, to view individual's medical test results & records, or utilities to provide electric metering. APIs are Innovation enablers as listed but also have downside: ubiquity and connectedness to sensitive data make them prime target for hackers. API issues have led to breaches at a large number of big-name organizations. In this session, we'll share how today's hackers identify and attack APIs and additionally review the best approach for securing APIs including how 'artificial intelligence' powered solutions can effectively stop these attacks and provide deep visibility into API sessions for forensic and compliance reporting. Specifically, Francois 's presentation will provide: API cyberattack trends; recent API attacks, what to watch for and how to protect your API activity; how to deliver reports with detailed traffic insight and best practices for securing any API.
