Navigating the Shadows:
Understanding API Security
Through History

Monday, October 28
1:30-2:15 pm
Hope Ballroom D

45 minutes

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are a vital component of modern software architectures, driving innovation and playing a central role in software solutions. With API traffic accounting for more than 50% of all internet traffic, and many organizations having more APIs than they realize, it’s no surprise that APIs have become a prime target for bad actors. Unfortunately, API attacks are rising rapidly while API security strategies lag behind.

Join Paulo Silva, Security Practitioner at Char49, for an insightful talk addressing this critical gap between attackers and organizations' API security strategies. This session will explore the ten most critical API security risks according to Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) from an attacker’s perspective. By examining past API security incidents, attendees will gain valuable lessons and practical knowledge on how to mitigate risks within their own APIs.

Join us to stay ahead in the ever-evolving landscape of API security and protect your organization's data gateways effectively.

Who Should Attend:

This session is ideal for trucking industry professionals involved in developing, implementing, or managing APIs. If you're a software developer working on API integrations, an API security specialist, IT Security Professional, DevOps Engineer, or Enterprise Architect, this session is for you!
