Onapsis Security Platform Provides SAP Customers with Automated GDPR Compliance Capabilities
Boston, MA - December 7, 2017 - Onapsis, the global experts in SAP and Oracle application cybersecurity and compliance, today announced new automated product functionality in the Onapsis Security Platform (OSP) specific to GDPR compliance mandates. This functionality will allow Onapsis customers to quickly evaluate if SAP systems are meeting the requirements of this mandate to protect EU data subjects information. As with any new policy, the first stage is to identify those SAP systems that are in scope. In the case of GDPR, these are any systems that process, handle or store user information.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation with an enforcement date in May 2018 concerning the protection of EU data subjects’ personal and sensitive information. Research conducted by the UK & Ireland SAP User Group shows 86% of SAP users do not fully understand how GDPR will affect their SAP landscapes and how to reach compliance. It is almost certain GDPR will have an impact, in some way or another, on any company large enough to have chosen SAP, which touches all aspects of a business. In fact almost every SAP system includes GDPR's core element: personal data.
“In speaking to our customers, we know that GDPR is a complicated mandate and many organizations are struggling to determine if or how their SAP landscapes are relevant. With this in mind, Onapsis’s newly released audit policy within the Onapsis Security Platform (OSP) automatically evaluates any SAP system through the lense of the data protection requirements of GDPR. This includes both data at rest, data in transit and the assessment of data access or authorizations,” commented Alex Horan, Director of Product Management, Onapsis.
Through the execution of this new policy, enterprises leveraging OSP can identify SAP systems that do not have adequate protection of the data and processes. Users will receive detailed guidance on how to address these security gaps. As new systems are brought in, scoped and tagged as GDPR, they will automatically be included in the next audit.

Onapsis’s Director of Product Management, Alex Horan, will host a live webcast to help organizations understand the complex issue of GDPR and SAP on December 19th at 9:00am and 1:00pm EST. Register here for the webcast.
