“Hacking API Security” – Super Cyber Friday

Please join us on Friday, October 28th, 2022 for Super Cyber Friday.

Our topic of discussion will be “Hacking APIs: An hour of critical thinking on protecting the conduits of corporate data.”

Register for 10-28-22 event.

We discussed this very topic more than two years ago and it was one of our top five most popular shows. So, we’re revisiting it again.

Joining David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series for this discussion will be:

In preparation for our discussion, think about the following:

  • We discussed this two years ago. What have been the biggest changes in APIs and the process by which we secure them?
  • How are APIs attacked?
  • How can developers better be equipped to handle this issue?
  • What are methods we’ve used that don’t work? What has worked? What are we missing? 
  • Are there areas of API security that are classically avoided but shouldn’t be?
  • What are some classic API security mistakes?

It all starts at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific. At the end of the hour [2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific] we’ll switch gears to our meetup where everyone will get a chance to chat face to face.

Got feedback? Join the conversation on LinkedIn.

HUGE thanks to our sponsor Noname Security
