Introducing the Onapsis Q-Talks for CFOs Series: Focus on Cybersecurity and Compliance

Onapsis has launched Q-Talks for CFOs, a series of webinars specifically for CFOs. In quick 15-minute sessions (“Q” for a quarter of an hour!), cybersecurity and compliance experts will discuss the increasing threats against mission-critical applications and impact on compliance. Find out where the greatest risks hide, how to identify them and what to do to mitigate the risk to both security and compliance.   

Short, Concise and Instructive

The new Q-Talks series from Onapsis focuses on cybersecurity issues in mission-critical applications and the consequences on the financial integrity of your organization. Particular risks are posed by vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in mission-critical applications, such as SAP, Oracle and Salesforce, which form the backbone of daily operations. If these issues remain unattended, they provide attractive gateways for data thieves, industrial spies and saboteurs to steal, modify or delete entire databases. This deficiency in IT controls can lead to high economic losses, penalties and reputation damage for your company. In addition, you are at risk of violating compliance regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) or the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which present significant penalties, including massive fines and even potentially jail time. 

Various Specialists at One Table 

The Q-Talks for CFOs brings together representatives of global technology and consulting companies with Onapsis specialists. Together, we will examine mission-critical application cybersecurity and compliance issues that can be particularly impactful for your finance department. We invite you to listen to our knowledgeable line up of experts and their many years of experience to help you effectively protect your financial organization from cyber threats and compliance issues.

The Impact of Vulnerabilities on Financial Integrity

In our kick-off talk, moderator Reza Mehman, Chief Innovation Officer at Onapsis, will discuss with his guests why CFOs should place the highest value on effective patch management for your entire mission-critical application environment. Key requirements are clear responsibilities and processes as well as comprehensive IT transparency. To avoid undermining the patch strategy, employees must also be given binding guidelines for the use and security of IT systems. We inform you about the most important measures.  

Who Really Owns Your Mission-Critical Applications?

Mission-critical applications must meet different requirements. While CIOs are concerned with optimal performance and availability, CISOs are primarily concerned with secure system operation. CFOs want complete and accurate financial reports and as few IT controls as possible. Between these heterogeneous interests, blind spots of cybersecurity arise, which can affect the entire business operation. In this expert talk, learn how these gaps arise and the experts answer who really owns your mission-critical applications.

Security Impact on Financial Reporting: The CFO Blind Spot  
Wednesday, 18 November 2020, 10:00 ET 

Often undetected or underestimated by CFOs and the Board of Directors, cybersecurity can have serious consequences for compliance and even put companies in financial distress in the event of a breach. This panel discussion will focus on the question of how finance and compliance managers can be sensitized to IT security problems in the long term. Together with guest Mariano Nunez, CEO of Onapsis, we will shine a light on how to ensure that CFO’s and the board can be educated on these risks, including targeted educational work and cybersecurity recommendations specifically for financial applications.
