Ensuring API Access Security and Data Privacy to Enable API First and Open Data Initiatives

Connecting resources and sharing data serve as the foundation for digital transformation and is almost all done via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) – introducing massive scale, security, data privacy and compliance issues. As APIs have become the fabric of modern service delivery and compartmentalized app development, their exposure of application logic and sensitive data has made them a high-value target of threat actors. Where can enterprises invest to secure sensitive data and enforce privacy as it flows between distributed users, applications, services, and APIs. This paper provides reviews the drivers, challenges, requirements and approaches to mitigate cyber risk, and advance devops and security proficiency.
