About this event

Join us for an online meetup focusing on API security in the UK public sector and local government on Tuesday 11 May 2021, 10:00 to 12:30 BST. Organised by the UK cross-government API and Data Exchange Community and the Cabinet Office's Data Standards Authority API Programme.

What’s happening at this meetup?

TLS /encryption. OAuth. Throttling. Where do you start with API security when developing or procuring API products? What's the best practice for authorizing and granting access to users? How do you make sure the API gateway you use is providing the security you need? Join us to talk about the challenges and solutions from across the UK public sector.

We’ve got some great speakers lined up, including Isabelle Mauny, CTO of 42crunch on the automation of API security and speakers from security and authentication specialists Auth0 and open-source API solution Gravitee.

If you’re just setting out on your API journey, looking for a security solution or you want to hear the latest intel to make sure your API security is up to scratch, this meetup is for you!

This meetup will be also useful for any developers, DevOps, security specialists and product owners you are working with.

The meeting will be held on Microsoft Teams, which can be accessed via PC, laptop and mobile devices via browser or app.

What's the cross-government API and Data Exchange Community?

It can be a challenge to develop and maintain APIs - and even to find them. The API and Data Exchange Community of Practice provide a forum to look at common challenges and share experiences and solutions from across the UK.

All our meetups and events are aimed at helping us learn from each other and move towards better data-sharing. Anyone from the public sector or local government in the UK is welcome to attend.
