In the rapidly evolving world of connected vehicles, fleets, smart mobility and transportation, the importance of cybersecurity cannot be understated. With the industry’s ever-growing reliance on APIs to drive innovation and new revenue streams and the growing number of cybersecurity incidents involving APIs, the focus on securing APIs is critical to ensure safety, business continuity and protect sensitive data. Recognizing that this is one of the fastest-growing attack vectors facing the industry, Upstream has collaborated with APISec University, which offers free, hands-on courses dedicated to API Security and is one of the top resources for those seeking to learn more about API Security.

As connected vehicles become increasingly more common and smart mobility services or connected fleet operation systems become the norm, ensuring the security of APIs is crucial to guaranteeing the safety of vehicles and the myriad of services they’re intertwined with. As these technological advancements offer innovative revenue opportunities, they simultaneously introduce an ever-expanding attack surface. It’s a delicate balance, and Upstream is determined to help the industry navigate successfully.
