2022 Cyber Predictions: Beware of Serious Vulnerabilities in Enterprise APIs

This is part of our 2022 cybersecurity predictions series. Top leaders from across the industry shared what cyber could bring in the new year.









Jeff Williams, CTO and Co-Founder at Contrast Security:


  • NIST standards will require all companies that do business with the Federal Government (and their extended network) to make public some kind of document disclosing what they’re doing to secure each application. This will likely include an SBOM, potentially a software security label, and possibly other details.

  • Major breaches will occur based on serious vulnerabilities in enterprise APIs and serverless functions.

  • Software supply chain security programs will move beyond just the code you write and code you import, and start including all the tools used in the software development process, such as build tools, test environments, developer laptops, and all the other tools used in development.
