Solving the Next Generation of Application Security Solutions Forum

  • Thursday, 04 Aug 2022 11:00AM EDT (04 Aug 2022 15:00 UTC)
  • Speaker: Chris Dale

Modern applications are extremely hard to secure and protect. Micro-services, APIs, and cloud services are complex and continuously changing. Traditional security solutions that focus on building a higher wall, a deeper moat, are simply too static and too slow to respond to the pace of continuous change and attacks. Now is the time to close the divide between teams and renew the focus on application security to support the next generation of business innovation.

This solution forum will showcase a new approach to Application and API security. Security through observability, where security has the context of the application and is able to mitigate fraud and abuse. It’s time to bring engineering, operations, and security together for the next generation of application security.

API Security Requirements - What You Need to Have to Secure Your APIs

APIs have become the critical glue that binds together almost all of the applications and online services that the world now uses daily. 

 What hasn't evolved as quickly as API usage itself, is the way that we secure these critical communications channels. The industry is now catching up to the importance of API security, the available solutions in the market, and what API security should include, from a capabilities perspective. The security industry needs to be able to have discussions about how to properly secure APIs, and organizations need to have the option to compare different solutions to see which ones meet their needs. Join Traceable's Head of Product Management, Renata Budko, to learn the must have API security requirements your organization needs, to properly secure your APIs.

Anatomy of an API Attack - Applying MITRE Framework to API Threat Modeling

In this talk we will take a look at the practical issues of security APIs through the length of the MITRE framework. We will discuss: 

- An overview of MITRE framework
- How well known API attack vectors map to known adversary tactics and technique
- A real-world use case of an attack that has started as an API breach and got developed into a full-fledged MITRE-style att@k
- Effective mitigations for API exploits

API Catalog: First Step Towards API Security

API Security starts with being able to discover and catalog all of your APIs and their distributed interactions in real-time. In simple terms, you can’t protect what you can’t see. In this session, join Traceable Product Manager, Amod Gupta, as he talks about the need for an actionable API Catalog, the capabilities it must provide, and how security teams can start creating one.

API Security: Preventing API Abuse and Data Leakage

API's are the interconnectivity pipe through which data flows between apps and to/from users including threat actors. As the amount of sensitive data which flows through API's increases manifold it is imperative that security teams get a better understanding of the volumes of traffic leaving their apps. From fake accounts creation to account takeovers to data exfiltration to API Fraud the abuse of API's needs a new approach to ensure API's don't become the attack vector for data breaches.
