Customer Spotlight: How Dow Chemical Leverages Onapsis for Harmonized, Proactive Security & Compliance

September 29, 2022


Traditionally, cybersecurity and compliance have been two very separate functions where oftentimes the misalignment has been emphasized more than alignment toward a common goal. Add in the complexities of the compliance landscape and ever growing threats to business-critical applications, and defenders have a difficult challenge to solve with limited resources.

Onapsis customer, Dow Chemical, discusses their journey and best practices utilizing The Onapsis Platform and how they solve these challenges–bringing their cybersecurity and compliance functions together in harmony.

Watch this session to gain an understanding of how to:

  • Harmonize and remove barriers between security and compliance/audit teams for a holistic assessment of organizational risk
  • Save budget and resources by identifying opportunities where one solution can support both cybersecurity and compliance/audit efforts
  • Develop a proactive approach to ERP by securing the application layer–vital protection for business continuity and threat remediation for faster response to zero days
  • Navigate the current regulatory landscape and save hundreds of hours with automation of critical governance activities (i.e. ICFR/SOX)”
