Securing APIs and Microservices in the Cloud

The video on-demand of this session is available to logged in QCon attendees only. Please login to your QCon account to watch the session.

One of the advantages of microservices architecture is that teams can develop, maintain, and deploy each microservice independently. With single-responsibility, services can be scaled separately as required and with a DevOps mentality this substantially improves agility. 

How do we secure these microservices? How do we know if our APIs are secure?

Systems must be designed securely as security as an afterthought does not scale.

Looking at OWASP recommendations, join this session to find out more about how to secure your APIs and microservices in the cloud.
