Untested APIs

Effectively address security blind spots by managing untested APIs.

If an API exists but hasn't undergone security testing, it introduces specific challenges:

  1. Security Blind Spots: Untested APIs may harbor vulnerabilities or weaknesses that remain undetected, posing a security risk.

  2. Inaccurate Risk Assessment: Without security testing, the risk assessment may lack crucial insights, potentially leading to misinformed decisions.

  3. Compliance Challenges: Regulatory compliance often requires thorough security assessments. Untested APIs may create compliance challenges.

Managing Implications: Prioritize security assessments, documentation, and collaboration to ensure comprehensive testing and mitigate potential vulnerabilities.
