Hackers hit the e-commerce industry with 14 billion attacks in 15 months, pushing it to the top of the list of targets for web application and API exploits. A new Akamai report blames digitalization and the wide range of vulnerabilities hackers can exploit in web applications.
Manual API discovery is impossible due to the sheer number of APIs available, their constant changes, poor documentation, different formats and protocols, and different authentication and security requirements. Given these challenges, the solution is to use automated API discovery tools.
Change management is a critical part of a robust API management program, said Shaam Farooq, vice president of technology at Atlas Energy Solutions and a CyberEdBoard member. Team members must review and approve changes as they happen and communicates those changes across IT and OT security teams.
A new OAuth-related vulnerability in an open-source application development framework could expose Facebook, Google, Apple and Twitter users to account takeover, personal data leakage, identity theft, financial fraud and unauthorized actions on other online platforms, security researchers said.
Cybersecurity is top of mind for business leaders across the globe. However, oftentimes security is sacrificed to satisfy the various business initiatives and deliverable timelines – putting businesses at risk for data breaches and other malicious attacks

Akamai will shrink its workforce by 3% as its shifts resources from its shrinking content delivery business to growth areas in cloud computing and security. The company will shrink its 9,960-person staff by 299 positions as it looks to sustain its profitability levels despite economic headwinds.
The adoption of APIs in terms of daily transactions in the post-COVID-19 digital world has skyrocketed, but that proliferation of APIs has created exposures and risks that need to be addressed proactively before an organization faces a devastating data breach, warned Pam Murphy, CEO at Imperva.
APIs are delivering huge business value, but people don’t know how many APIs they have in their organization, what they do or who controls them. And that causes massive security vulnerabilities, according to CyberEdBoard panelists Chase Cunningham and Richard Bird.
Organizations looking to adopt zero trust architectures are increasing pursuing service mesh rather than microsegmentation due to new innovations, said Ballistic Ventures General Partner Barmak Meftah. Microsegmentation excels at limiting the attack surface but comes with major overhead expense.
Application security and delivery vendor F5 will shrink its workforce by 9% due to customers delaying purchasing decisions amid macroeconomic uncertainty. The Seattle-based firm will lay off 623 of its 7,100 employees as part of a cost-cutting effort that includes reducing F5's facilities footprint.
Akamai Technologies has agreed to purchase a finalist in last year's RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox Contest to get more visibility into the API threat landscape. Silicon Valley-based Neosec will help customers discover all their APIs, assess their risk and respond to vulnerabilities and attacks.
Hackers have seized on the API revolution to drive a surge in attacks that exploit poorly coded applications, reports Akamai, in a warning echoed by other cybersecurity experts. The vector driving the most growth in API attacks is local file inclusion.
Snyk has executed its third round of layoffs since June 2022, axing 128 workers amid projections of challenging market conditions persisting into early 2024. The Boston-based application security vendor revealed Thursday plans to reduce its more than 1,200-person staff by an estimated 11%.
As field CTO, EMEA for Noname Security, Filip Verloy spends lots of time talking with customers and analysts about API security. Two common themes: Few organizations know the number and types of APIs in their enterprise, and fewer understand exactly how data is being exchanged among them.
