APIs are software glue that connect our digital worlds. Consider these trends: 96% of applications contain some Open Source [Black Duck Software]; 99% of such applications have integrate web APIs [TeejLab]. 83% of the internet traffic is due to these web APIs[Akamai]. Implications of APIs are profound both positive (through accelerated innovations, newer business models, competitive differentiation) and negative (via hidden attack vector leading to business continuity problems). Gartner has already estimated that 90% of web applications are attacked via exposed APIs. Given these trends it is imperative for Security, Compliance and Audit professionals to get a handle on APIs before things get out of control due to various API related risks. This session will provide an overview of an effective API governance framework that enterprises can adopt to manage their API security, legal and compliance risks. This framework is inspired by Zero Trust model and methodology such as Software Composition Analysis that enterprises can adopt for effective API Risk Management. We’ll highlight best practices, both manual and automated, with relevant tool recommendations. Participants will have an opportunity to exercise use case(s) using these tools.

Dr. Baljeet Malhotra is an award-winning researcher known for his work in Open Source and API Risk Management.
