api pentesting and security training


The API Pentesting and Security training is a comprehensive program designed to help participants understand the challenges associated with modern API development and integration. API Pentesting and security training helps security professionals who are responsible for securing the design, implementation, and overall security of API endpoints and communications. It provides a practical approach to understanding and addressing the challenges associated with API security, including designing secure APIs, implementing authentication and authorization mechanisms, addressing data privacy concerns, and protecting APIs against various types of attacks.

By the end of the training, participants will have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to identify and mitigate API-related security risks, effectively securing their organisations’ API infrastructure.
