Live Webinar | APIs: The Next Frontier in Cybercrime
June 10, 2020 | 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time
APIs are rapidly becoming the next frontier in cybercrime. Driven by rapid mobile device adoption, the move towards containers, serverless computing, service mesh architectures and cloud adoption, API usage has seen exponential growth. Often documented and publicly exposed to simplify adoption, APIs are a double edged sword – bringing the benefits of rapid development and ease of integration to both the developer and the bad actor community. Instead of scripting a web-form fill as an attack, bad actors will discover and target the supporting APIs to execute account takeovers, fake account creation and other forms of API abuse.
