Automate your API security with Security as Code

Webinar Thumb Preview-1024x585px copy

Traditionally developers like to focus on the data and functionality of their APIs while the security team is concerned with the enforcement of API security controls and policies. This siloed approach has led to inefficiencies and bottlenecks in the DevSecOps’ cycle that are delaying the release of APIs and creating cost over runs.

In this webinar we look at how organizations can overcome this challenge by adopting a “security as code” approach to automate their API protection.

The OpenAPI specification (OAS) is the industry standard for defining REST APIs. By using a common OAS file both developers and security practitioners can now focus on their respective roles without hindering the speedy rollout of protected APIs.

Join Colin Domoney as he demonstrates how DevSecOps teams now automate and scale the protection of your APIs by generating “security as code” into a CI/CD pipeline. Using a common OAS file it is possible to automatically inject security constructs at a late stage in the build process eliminating the need for this to be a development activity and something that may be easily overlooked. Colin explains how to use the CI/CD pipeline as the control backbone and the automation engine for the security and compliance of your APIs.

What you will learn:

    • How to automate the injection security policies into your CI/CD pipeline – including Jenkins and Azure DevOps.
    • How to use an OpenAPI Specification file to determine both the data contracts and the security controls within a single API.
    • How to accelerate the rollout of secure APIs by bridging the gap between development and security teams.
