Our first guest this month is Katie Paxton-Fear!

Through the eyes of a hacker, APIs are wonderful things. They power everything from Social Media to your IoT microwave and they are full of security vulnerabilities.

During this live session, Katie will first bring us into the world of API hacking, covering the basics:
-How hackers approach a target
-What hackers are looking for
-The general signs that they are on the right track.

She will then demonstrate her approach, showing us some of the key vulnerabilities she looks for, how she exploits them and then highlighting the code responsible.

Join us on Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 at 1 PM EST on our YouTube Channel (Live): https://youtu.be/qqmyAxfGV9c
