API ha become the de facto standard by making business functions available as open interoperable services that can be called by required application – be it mobile, web or IoT device and so on.

As these APIs are generally publicly available for integration, there is a greater need to ensure the APIs are secured, protected and most importantly any sensitive data that is transferred by these APIs calls needs to be encrypted, protected and in some cases compliant, for instance PCI for credit cards transactions.

In this week video, we would go over how to secure APIs and Best practices for Microservices API security. Topics covered – Security by design, penetration testing, api gateway security, OWAS Top 10 API guidelines, api security and compliance best practices
