Auditing APIs for Technical Due Diligence at Enterprises
Join us for an in person ISACA Puget Sound Chapter luncheon at the Columbia Tower Club. Lunch is included, starting at 11:30am and the presentation will start at noon.
A tech-audit identifies and evaluates an organization's digital systems consisting of infrastructure, software/applications, data usage and management policies, procedures and operational preparedness against recognized industry standards and/or best practices. APIs are common glue that connect these digital systems with people and processes. Given that APIs contribute 80% or more of the web traffic by enterprises, APIs have the power to impact your organization both positively (through innovations, new business models, competitive differentiation) and negatively (due to security, business disruptions, legal and compliance issues). These impacts are compounding with increasing API footprint of enterprises. Therefore, auditing APIs has become an important aspect of technology due diligence. In this session, we'll go through the details of an API-audit process containing hands-on-training scenarios to help the executives and compliance experts as well as cyber security practitioners.
