  • Security
Security in the API Economy

Technology has revolutionized how we interact with the world around us. The critical systems we rely on are pervasive in every imaginable format and on every connected device. Unfortunately, our security practices haven’t kept pace with this evolution and everyday people and companies fall victim to identity theft, data breaches and irate customers and employees.

In this talk, we’ll look at the industry approaches to authentication and authorization, the tradeoffs that come with each strategy, and how we can, and why we must do better. By changing our mindset and building on a reliable foundation of well-established standards, we can protect our systems and users now and into the future.
