API Security: A CISO’s Perspective


Explore new territories on breach mitigation…

Thursday, February 24, 2022 – 2pm EDT

APIs are at the heart of Digital Transformation initiatives. APIs provide access to business technologies and ecosystems that are driving modern business innovation, yet APIs don’t always have adequate security controls. Protecting APIs requires a shift in strategy and operations that expands beyond just the IT Security team.

Join Karl Mattson, CISO of Noname Security, as he answers questions about why securing APIs has been so difficult. Karl will also cover additional topics including:

• How API Security is different from the “normal” application security

• Why gateways and WAFs only cover some of the API estate

• How to expose authentication flaws before a breach has occurred

• A walk through the API Security Journey
