Avoiding Breaches by Securing the Development Process

Live Webinar: 4 December

In the race to unlock new business channels and create more value, there is always a push to develop new APIs. But how do they get from idea to value? And how do you ensure that they are developed not only swiftly, but securely? Strict top-down control destroys speed, but no governance puts you at major risk of regulatory and compliance violations.

Any phase of your API lifecycle - from strategy and design to deployment and optimization – can be the source of vulnerabilities that enable malicious attacks and allow unauthorized access, unapproved APIs, and exposed data.

In this webinar, we explore the API development process: where it originates, how to secure it, and how to maximize automation while preserving developer creativity and speed.

Join Rod Cope, CTO of Perforce Software, and guest speaker Randy Heffner, VP and Principal Analyst from Forrester Research, Inc., as they discuss:

  • How new APIs originate from new business channels and new web and mobile applications.
  • Infusing security throughout the API development process.
  • Structuring API delivery workflows to both meet compliance demands and speed development.
  • Integrating with CI/CD/DevOps to automate and harden the API lifecycle.
