API Days Connect Hong Kong

API Days Hong Kong has been the largest API ecosystem conference series in the region since 2020. With more than 3,000 attendees, 200 expert speakers and 100 compelling talks related to APIs, the 2023 event was a great success. Attendees learn about the latest news, research and development in the world of APIs.

With the increasing importance and popularity of APIs in modern software development and application design, it’s no surprise that APIs are becoming an increasingly attractive attack surface for bad actors. With that in mind, Jeremy Snyder took to the virtual stage to present a talk on ‘API Security: Analysis of Breaches, Attack Vectors and Strategies.’

What’s covered

APIs account for over 83% of all web requests today, and that number is continuing to grow. And as APIs rise in importance, API attacks rise in volume and impact. In fact, as of 2022, APIs became the leading web attack vector. In this talk, you will learn about:

  • The Importance of API Security - Real-world examples to highlight the importance of APIs and API security in the current, digital world.
