“We’ve seen from recent events, most notably the Heartbleed vulnerability, that security needs to be a top priority for every organization. As such, it’s vital to equip IT teams with the skills necessary to implement enterprise APIs that can serve as the cornerstone of secure data and identity exchange. And there’s no better way to learn best-practice security strategies than to hear real-world examples first-hand from industry leaders.”
