Creating Your Disaster Recovery Action Plan | Tripwire

*As featured on - March 1, 2022

Perhaps Disaster Recovery (DR) isn’t one of the hot terms like the Internet of Things (IoT) or Hybrid Cloud, but I would argue that re-examining your DR plan now might be one of the most important IT management initiatives on which you can focus your energy.
Think about it. How much has the world changed in the past two years? Most people used to think about disasters as typical IT incidents such as system failure, ransomware incidents, or power outages. While these are still critical disasters to plan around, the pandemic brought a shift to increased decentralization of technology and people, changing the way we work, the security landscape, and how we define and respond to a disaster. Now our disaster recovery plans need to be broader and more comprehensive than ever before.

APIs: What they are, the benefits & why security is a worry (Guest Blog)

What in the world is an API?

If you use a travel app (e.g., Expedia) to find what different airlines are flying to your destination, or if you’ve seen Google Maps embedded on a site, then you’ve interacted with an API.

An Application Programming Interface (API) is a set of operations that allows applications to access data and interact with external software components.

An API delivers the user’s action to a system, then sends the system’s reply to that user. When someone clicks “Add to Cart,” the API tells the site that a product was added, the site puts the product in the cart, and the cart gets updated.

We use APIs all the time but most of us never think about them at all. They greatly expand the services that a site or app can render. This service expansion is made possible by developers of both the APIs and the sites that use them. Many site developers don’t need to create APIs – they just need to use the APIs that are made available by whatever product or service is being used.
