APIs. They’ve been around for years in one form or another, bringing the benefits of ease of use, efficiency and flexibility to the development community. 

The beauty of using APIs for mobile and web apps is that you can build and deploy functionality and data integrations quickly. But that's the huge downside, too. Undermining the power of an API driven development methodology are shadow, deprecated and non-conforming APIs that when exposed to the public, introduce the risk of data loss, compromise or automated fraud. 

The stateless nature of APIs and their ubiquity makes protecting them increasingly difficult. A challenge that is amplified by the wide range of API security alternatives. This session will delve into the different approaches to protecting APIs from a range of security risks and how should security and development teams approach a consistent protection philosophy.
