Onapsis and HMG Strategy Release White Paper Detailing Securing ERP Applications During Digital Transformation Projects
Boston, MA – April 10, 2018 – Onapsis, the global experts in SAP and Oracle application cybersecurity and compliance, today announced the release of a white paper co-authored with HMG Strategy titled, “Protecting the Crown Jewels in the Pivot to Digital Transformation.” This comprehensive white paper outlines key security challenges in migrating complex business-critical applications during digital transformation strategies and methods to ensure the business crown jewels are protected each step of the way.
For many organizations, digital transformation is not just buzzwords but a detailed outline of business and operational plans to integrate, prioritize and fully utilize the latest digital technologies available. While these plans may have significant cost and productivity benefits to the organization, security is often a second priority or not in the scope of these projects. Beyond that, many organizations have not identified a plan for how they will migrate their most critical SAP and Oracle applications and workloads in a secure way, putting their crown jewels at risk.
“Security usually isn’t a key component in digital transformation projects but it should be,” said Juan Pablo Perez-Etchegoyen, CTO at Onapsis. “Strictly from a business perspective, it’s not only way more expensive to implement security after the fact than when business processes are being implemented, but also it takes considerably more time and resources. Because of this, instead of being able to secure a component in a week, it could take a year.”
“When it comes to digital transformation, new technology brings new risks. You need to be able to manage these risks, especially when it comes to mission-critical apps and data. We cannot afford to run them in an insecure way. Properly developing a transformation plan with security involved step-by-step can make the project run seamlessly and ensure that your critical systems are secure and compliant at each step,” continued Perez-Etchegoyen.
