In 2021, the industry witnessed no shortage of API-related security incidents resulting from leaky APIs, vulnerable system APIs, authorization flaws, and more.  Companies like Experian, Microsoft, and Peloton all made the news, and some impacts are still playing out. Salt Labs threat research also highlighted potential security issues with Elastic stack deployments and GraphQL adoption. Data breaches aren’t the only area of concern for organizations. Account takeovers, privacy impacts, system compromises, and business logic abuse are equally damaging. 

So what does the future hold for us with respect to API security? 

Please join us for a handful of API security predictions for 2022 based on some of the learning lessons of 2021. The information can help identify risks you may not have considered and help prioritize projects as part of your organization’s security strategy heading into 2022.
