From Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2016, Onapsis Releases Industry’s First CISO Guide to SAP Cybersecurity Risks

Global leaders in SAP cybersecurity outline common misconceptions and risks, and how to mitigate against them

Boston, MA – October 19, 2016Onapsis, the global experts in business-critical application security, today released the industry’s first CISO eBook titled “The CISO’s Guide to SAP Cybersecurity Risks.” This detailed guide outlines what’s at stake from improperly securing SAP systems and provides steps for how to build an effective SAP cybersecurity strategy.

“SAP systems house an organization’s most valuable data and processes, including intellectual property, financial details, and customer data. However, despite housing such crucial information, there are still many misconceptions around how these systems should be secured. Over the last several years, we have seen a dramatic increase in threats to SAP systems, a new focus on protecting these systems, and a drastic change in the methods in which CIOs, CISOs and information security teams are securing and managing their most mission-critical assets,” said Mariano Nunez, CEO and Co-Founder, Onapsis.

The eBook covers five key areas, providing a holistic view of the current state of SAP cybersecurity, misconceptions and risks, and actionable steps CISOs can take to mitigate these risks and operationalize best practices within their organization. Chapter topics include:

  • The Current State of SAP Cybersecurity
  • What’s at Stake from Improperly Securing SAP Systems?
  • SAP Security Best Practices
  • 10 Questions Every CISO Should Ask Right Now
  • Steps CISO’s and Security Teams Can Take to Improve SAP Security Posture

“This eBook will help CIOs, CISOs and Security teams bring visibility to the inner workings of SAP cybersecurity by outlining where the responsibility of SAP cybersecurity lies within an organization. Now more than ever, it is critical for organizations to learn about existing vulnerabilities within their SAP environment, determine the business risks of these vulnerabilities, and implement an effective, operationalized SAP cybersecurity strategy to begin eliminating risks to the SAP infrastructure,” continued Nunez.

The CISO’s Guide to SAP Cybersecurity Risks is available at the Onapsis booth #1114 or for download at:
