According to Gartner, APIs account for the majority of Public/web/mobile application attack surface. Most exploited vulnerabilities no longer come from web server misconfiguration or SQL injections or browser hacks, instead the majority of widely exploited vulnerabilities now come from application logic, access controls, and other non-conventional flaws. This session will go over the top vulnerabilities in APIs and build an automated & continuous API security testing strategy. The Shift-Left strategy will deliver secure and faster releases while significantly reducing manual and penetration testing security costs.
