Forum Systems Inc., provider of the industry-leading API security gateway, Forum Sentry, today announced that it will be hosting the fourth annual API Summit on Thursday, March 26 at The Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in London. Led by Forum Systems Chief Technology Officer Jason Macy, the all-day event will feature sessions by industry experts from Forrester Research and Aksium Ltd., and will be followed by dinner at the Bread Street Kitchen Restaurant.
Taking place from 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. GMT, the API Summit will feature insightful discussions on managing enterprise APIs for on-premise, cloud and mobile computing services. Additionally, attendees will learn about the impact on identity management and security within large companies using third-party APIs, and the best practices required for successful implementations.
Event presentation highlights include:
- “Cybersecurity in the API Economy,” by Randy Heffner, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
- “Application Externalization in a New API Era,” by Shankar Swaroop, Senior API Security Architect
- “Integrating Security Testing with DevOps,” by Mat Morell, Infrastructure Security Architect, Aksium Ltd.
“London is the epicenter of API security development and deployment,” said Macy. “More than any other region, the UK understands the need for a modern, secure architecture, and has adopted API security technology more rapidly than any other nation. Its centralized location, high-population density, role as a transportation hub and high-profile security drivers, have propelled the UK to the vanguard of API security innovation. And we’re excited to once again host an interactive, informative event to foster best practices collaboration and dynamic idea exchange.”
