Application programming interfaces (APIs) drive every aspect of business today — and their influence will only continue to grow. That means that APIs are no longer just an IT matter. In this free one-hour webinar, John Engates and Saikrishna Chavali of Cloudflare share insights on what today’s business leaders need to understand about the benefits — and security concerns — of APIs. From their discussion, moderated by business and technology journalist Wade Roush, you’ll learn:

  • What APIs are.
  • How APIs affect everything from transactions to mobile apps to supply-chain relationships.
  • What you need to know about potential data exposure from APIs.
  • What to ask your security team about mitigating API risks.
