The most important elements of a cybersecurity strategy that lets you remain calm when faced by an attack. (February 18, 2020)

It's a question we're asked again and again: "How can I harden my SAP systems against cyberattacks?" In light of recent events, all companies have realized that they can become the target of an attack at any time. And when that happens, the damage caused can easily reach seven – or even nine – figures. Companies that fail to follow the basic rules of IT security can end up paying a heavy price for their mistakes.

In this webinar, we share our experiences with you, describe typical attack vectors, and illustrate why investments in the security of your SAP systems will pay off. We also show you the most important steps involved in safeguarding your systems – including hardening the hardware at all levels, sensible network zoning, and establishing a monitoring system to detect potential vulnerabilities in your system early on.

Topics of focus:

  • Challenges, tools, and reliable methods
  • What does a reliable security monitoring system need
  • Step-by-step instructions for protecting against attacks
  • Benefits of managed services for the security of your SAP systems

How can managed services improve your SAP security and compliance? We show you, based on specific customer cases. (March 24, 2020)

Although managed services are becoming a firm fixture in more and more IT areas, companies are still hesitant when it comes to SAP – even though almost all of them face similar challenges, including the specialized domain of SAP security and authorizations.

There is a shortage of specialist staff capable of ensuring GDPR-compliant monitoring of SAP systems, especially the sensitive personnel data they manage. Although they would like to monitor highly critical transactions, they often lack both the internal expertise and the suitable tools. Last but not least, although some companies monitor their IT systems in real time, the response times to alerts in the SAP environment are far too long to support a rapid response to identified threats.

Checking for vulnerabilities, flawed configurations, and critical authorizations on a regular basis is the only way to ensure SAP system security, however. With the SAST Managed Service, we can take care of all this for you, no matter whether your company is already playing in the Champions League of security or are only just starting out. We offer custom-tailored security and compliance solutions for both SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA.

Topics of focus:

  • The right managed service solution for every company
  • How to achieve better SAP security and compliance – even with a small IT budget
  • Practical examples from customers who use our SAST Managed Service
  • Special offer: our new "Starter Package"

Safety first! How to avoid pitfalls during your SAP S/4HANA conversion (April 28, 2020)

This webinar provides insights into what structured security planning can look like. We share our experiences from SAP S/4HANA migration projects with you and show you where common pitfalls lie.

We repeatedly encounter companies that have put their SAP security and (re)organization of their authorization system on the back burner, or that repeat mistakes from the R/3 migration process. This can become a significant risk to the entire project.

With our best-practice examples, we support you in achieving optimum preparation for your SAP S/4HANA conversion: including tool-supported reduction of your ABAP source code, adapting your SAP roles without critical basis objects, and capturing the full intended performance gains in your SAP HANA database.

Topics of focus:

  • Common pitfalls during SAP S/4HANA conversion
  • Examples of structured security planning
  • Model best practice projects for reliable, safe migration
