TechTalk: A Panel Discussion on OWASP Top 10/API Top 10

June 2020’s TechTalk had Joe Krull from Aite Group and API Academy’s own Jay Thorne join hosts Aran and Bill on a discussion around OWASP Top 10 and the newer API Top 10 and how enterprises can address common security issues around these problem areas. They also discussed the relationship between app developers and security architects, and how to address the friction between these two mindsets, as well as tactics and tools hackers are using to attack APIs (and how to protect yourself against them).
