{API SECURITY} Webinar & Virtual Challenge

APIs are central to digital transformation. The use of APIs has the potential to be transformative by enabling new business models and revenue streams. They are the connective tissue that powers modern web architectures and mobile apps and enables enterprises to deliver a digital marketplace.

Implemented without adequate guardrails, APIs also have the potential to disrupt and put businesses at risk. APIs expose data to outsiders. This makes an organization’s APIs extremely attractive to attackers, not just for the data the APIs provide but as potential entry points to other backend systems within an organization’s infrastructure.

We will be organising the {API SECURITY} Webinar on 10th March, 11.00am and the {API SECURITY} Virtual Challenge on 18th March, 6.00pm, in collaboration with F5 / NGINX to test your skills and win great prizes!

The {API SECURITY} Webinar will be super educational if you're interested in cyber security.
