Together with the apidays team who started the world’s largest API conference held in major cities around the world and M&A Knight Events, will shape the future of API threat management by catalyzing solutions through the collision of hackers, defenders, and solutions through premium content.

APIsecure is the world’s first conference dedicated to API threat management; bringing together breakers, defenders, and solutions in API security. Never before has a conference been focused solely on teaching the tactics and techniques in hacking APIs to red teams and how to defend against them to blue teams. This conference will feature multiple tracks of curated content, each dedicated to offense and defense from some of the most well-known cybersecurity influencers and hackers in API vulnerability research.

This event assembles the brightest minds from around the world in cybersecurity from breakers/attackers, defenders, and solutions developers in order to bring the imperative of public discourse. Content will be presented to penetration testers wanting to learn or further develop their craft in hacking APIs, defenders will learn how to improve their efficacy in detecting and analyzing indicators of compromise, developers will learn how to write more secure code, and providers of API security solutions will present on the latest technologies and tools to instrument red and blue teams and developers with the tools they need to preserve their competitive edge and accelerate decision making in their jobs.
