Building an API Risk Management Program for Enterprises

When:  Jan 26, 2023 from 10:00 to 14:30 (CT)
Associated with  Middle Tennessee Chapter

Program for Enterprises.

Workshop/Course Description: Web APIs benefit organizations immensely through accelerated innovations, newer business models, competitive differentiation, etc. Their growing significance can be measured based on the fact that APIs contribute 83% of the Internet traffic today. This growing API usage also means increased cybersecurity risks for enterprises. Given the importance of APIs in digital transformation and the risk they pose to enterprises, it is imperative for Security, Compliance and Audit professionals to better understand various API risks.

In this workshop, we'll identify various risks that originate from enterprise API ecosystems. We’ll then provide an overview of an API Governance framework that effectively manages API risks. This framework is inspired by Software Composition Analysis (SCA) and Zero Trust model. We’ll then highlight the best industry practices and hands-on examples for API Risk Management.

If you have questions before the meeting, please send them to Programs Director, Aaron Smith (
