Dr. Anton Chuvakin, security advisor at Office of the CISO, Google Cloud, joined our recent API Security Summit. Dr. Chuvakin’s session – co-hosted by Salt Security's Michelle McLean – provided an in-depth discussion on why API security has become a “now” problem.
The monetary growth opportunities promised by APIs are immense, but to harness them, CISOs must ensure the protection of their APIs.
With the industry moving to microservices and API-driven applications, new security threats and attack vectors have emerged. The PCI Security Standards Council has worked to address these threats in its newest PCI DSS 4.0 standard.
