Session Name: 5 Tips for Navigating Api Security Noise
APIs are the data fabrics connecting modern applications. While it is a powerful tool for Dev and DevOps, it has also become a new attack surface for bad actors to gain access to sensitive data. Many existing API security solutions today are so inflexible and rule-driven that they risk slowing down the development process. Lebin Cheng, Imperva’s Head of API Security, will help you navigate through the API Security noise with insights on: • DevSecOps does not mean Dev and Sec need to slow each other down. • How automated SecOps can speed up Dev and DevOps? • What is the right DevSecOps approach to implementing API Security? • First-hand insight into how a Digital-First organization took the first steps towards DevSecOps API Security, and how you can too? • Other DevSecOps best practices.
