The Newest Attack Vectors - Infrastructure as Code & API Security Virtual Briefing

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

The Newest Attack Vectors - Infrastructure as Code & API Security

 Moving applications and development to the cloud has delivered both operational and security benefits at scale. However, as organizations begin to automate their infrastructure deployments and configurations using Infrastructure as Code (IaC),  a new attack vector has been introduced. In addition, the move to cloud-native architectures increases the use of APIs connecting client applications to cloud hosted, microservices based solutions, introducing another new entry point for adversaries. While scanning for security vulnerabilities in application source code and on-premise network configurations is standard security protocol, many organizations have yet to focus sufficient attention on IaC and API code.


Please join us for “The Newest Attack Vectors- Infrastructure as Code & API Security Webinar” as a panel of industry experts and Government leadership will:


1.           Discuss the security implications with IaC and APIs.

2.           Provide recommendations for addressing these new attack vectors.
