The Explosion of API Security

How do CISOs get the most out of APIs while limiting the risk? 20 years ago the motives for hackers were website defacement and getting your name on all those defacements. That was the point of hacking. Now, it’s all about monetizing the data you can steal.

Just as cloud computing initially seeped into organizations under the cloak of shadow IT, application programming interface (API) adoption has often followed an organic, inexact, and unaudited path. IT leaders know they are benefiting from APIs, internal, via third parties, and often outwardly exposed. They just don’t know where they are, how much they support key services, and how they’re being used, or abused!
