Contrast Security Co-Founder and CTO Hosting API Workshop and Session at APIsecure
April 5, 2022 — Los Altos, CA — Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure-as-they code, announces Co-Founder and CTO Jeff Williams’ upcoming session “Defending APIs from the Inside-Out” and sponsorship of APIsecure, which is taking place virtually April 6-7, 2022. Jeff Williams will also host a workshop titled “Hands-on Testing and Protecting APIs” at APIsecure, which is the world’s first conference dedicated to API threat management.
“API Security testing and vulnerability analysis has continued to become more complex due to the growing number of cloud and on-prem ecosystems being leveraged by organizations looking at digital transformation. Unfortunately, traditional tools can no longer properly assess and gather the context needed from these multitudes of systems, resulting in massive numbers of both false positive and false negatives,” said Jeff Williams, Co-Founder and CTO at Contrast Security. “I’m looking forward to attending APISecure and encouraging developers to think about security from the inside out as this is the best approach to building security into your APIs and to create safeguards from vulnerabilities.”
What: Jeff Williams’ speaking session “Defending APIs from the Inside-Out” will educate attendees on how to improve API Security as well as how to leverage modern tools to gain context of how APIs work across interconnected APIs, microservices, web apps, frameworks, libraries, and serverless functions across multiple cloud and on-premise environments in order to properly deploy security testing and vulnerability analysis. During the fast-paced “Hands-on Testing and Protecting APIs” workshop attendees will see how a modern code security platform can make security easy, fast, and fun while learning how to:
- Automate API Security Testing
- Ensure your APIs are using open source safely
- Detect API attacks
- Prevent API vulnerabilities from being exploited
When: Thursday, April 7, 2022, at 11:05 am EST (speaking session) Thursday, April 7, 2022 at 2 pm EST (workshop)
