Learn how to align security and agility
In some organizations, the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) has earned a reputation inside of IT as a blocker or a hindrance to innovation. Some CISOs have even be referred to as the ‘Queen (or King) of No.’ Why? Because despite the massive amounts of attention being paid to security in the media, with Target, Apple, Nissan, and Twitter all making the news recently for their security failures, security is still considered an afterthought in most IT projects. As a result, by the time security professionals get involved in project delivery, they have no choice but to flag security gaps that often require impractical redesign — resulting in project delays at best and cancellation at worst.
It’s gotten so bad that by 2020, Gartner predicts 60% of digital businesses will suffer major service failures due to the inability of the IT security team to manage digital risk in new technology and use cases.
The good news: both technology and best practice methodologies exist today to address these gaps. Introducing security at the point of design isn’t a new concept, but APIs and API management have emerged as technology enablers to finally make this approach a reality. And by following MuleSoft’s API-led approach to connectivity in building application networks, CIOs and CISOs can create alignment between agility requirements and security requirements.
In this webinar, Uri Sarid, MuleSoft CTO and Kevin Paige, MuleSoft Head of Information Security, will discuss the reemergence of Security by Design and provide practical next steps for CISOs and CIOs to deliver an API strategy that can drive down risk while increasing IT delivery speed.
