Software development is becoming increasingly reliant on using third-party services accessed through APIs. These APIs connect various IT systems and processes with people to offer useful services that help us run our businesses and personal lives. API integration may be simple, but APIs may directly or indirectly expose your IT assets and Databases to unofficial or illegitimate use. This talk aims to help students understand the overall implications of API, including information security, data management, legal risk management, and licensing costs.
