Onapsis to Present "Defending Against the Rising Trend of SAP Cyberattacks" at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit
CEO Mariano Nunez to discuss growing trends and the current state of SAP cybersecurity
Boston, MA – June 13, 2016 – Onapsis, the global experts in business-critical application security, today announced that CEO and co-Founder, Mariano Nunez will present at the 2016 Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, MD. This annual conference is an innovative event that brings together best practices and strategies for maintaining cost-effective security and risk programs to support digital business and drive enterprise success.
“The current state of SAP cybersecurity is at a very crucial point. Recently, we have seen an increased amount of public breaches including the 36 organizations affected by the vulnerability behind the US-CERT Alert for SAP Systems. Cyberattacks against these systems are being executed at a growing rate as cybercriminals are taking advantage of the fact that SAP applications house the most critical business information within an organization, and are often applications that are the least protected,” said Mariano Nunez, CEO and co-Founder, Onapsis.
During Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit, Onapsis will showcase its latest threat intelligence, and strategic recommendations to help organization’s better understand how they can better protect themselves from cyberattacks targeting their business-critical applications.
Mariano will present the following session at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit:
Defending Against the Rising Trend of SAP Cyberattacks
When: Wednesday, June 15, 2016 1:20 P.M. EST – 1:45 P.M. EST
Where: Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, 201 Waterfront St., National Harbor, MD.
Abstract:As evidenced by the first-ever US-CERT Alert for SAP, business-critical applications are continuing to be the target of stealthy breaches. With this trend expected to continue, it is imperative that organizations have an effective SAP cybersecurity strategy in place to ensure that their mission-critical processes and information are properly protected. Join Mariano Nunez, CEO and co-Founder of Onapsis as he discusses the current state of cybersecurity, focusing on best practices for securing SAP, as well as recommendations for how organizations can operationalize SAP cybersecurity processes, and align efforts with the Top Twenty CIS Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense.
