DT: Achieving Baseline Security within the SAP Environment

Hosted By: Digital Transformation


Managing the risk of an interconnected business systems challenges all companies, large and small. The number and intensity of attacks on SAP systems increases daily. Even the US government is now issuing CERTs for vulnerabilities that have been known for some time. At the same time, increased regulation forces greater disclosure and increases liability.

In this session, we will provide an overview of SAP security aspects and what companies need to do to establish a foundation of security to build upon. We will cover everything from access authorization to enterprise threat detection.
