FINTECH: API Security - What you need to know

As APIs increasingly become the key component behind most mission-critical business, security has become paramount. With organisations no longer having defined perimeters and the application stack constantly evolving, the opportunities for attackers to manoeuvre under the radar are increasing. Gartner states that “By 2022, API abuse will be the most frequent attack vector resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications” In this OPTIMISE MeetUp we take a deep dive in agile security solutions that keep your APIs secure at all time without leaving gaps for attackers to sneak in and looking at some cool tech too! Here's what to expect: • How to detect targeted and prevent attack attempts at source • APIs' Security in the PSD2 (open banking) era • How to gain full visibility to your APIs (discover all your APIs so you know exactly what data and actions flow through them across your entire environment) • Remediate and Eliminate the Risk (leverage each attacker as your personal pen-tester to pinpoint weak spots in your APIs before they become a vulnerability) • Some cool tech!
