(ISC)Kansas City Chapter
Our April 5, 2023 meeting is in person!
Dinner will be provided!
Security of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)

A foundational element of innovation in today’s app-driven world is the Application Programming Interface (API). From banks, retail and transportation to IoT, autonomous vehicles and smart cities, APIs are a critical part of modern mobile, SaaS and web applications. By nature, APIs expose application logic and sensitive data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and because of this have increasingly become a target for attackers. Without secure APIs, rapid innovation would be impossible. API Security focuses on strategies and solutions to understand and mitigate the unique vulnerabilities and security risks of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

Please joins us as we hold an open discussion on the security of API:

  • What is API Security?
  • What are the most common API security risks?
  • What is API Sprawl?
  • How are attackers abusing APIs?
  • What are different API protection approaches?
  • Is there API Governance that should be followed?
