Swedish customers worried about SAP® security

By Hendrik Jansen  - October 1, 2018

Over the last two weeks we spoke to a hundred's of businesses in Sweden (at the SecureLink BootCamps in Gothenburg and Malmö) about cyber security in general, and SAP® security specifically.

2 great events, very well hosted (thank you @SecureLink Sweden), well organized and structured. There was loads of information sharing going on. Exchanging and understanding what each of these companies is going through when it comes to protecting themselves against cyber attacks (challenges, ideas, initiatives). These cyber attacks come in all sizes and shapes executed by script kiddies in the basement, cyber criminals or even more sophysticated groups, what they have in common is a large arsenal on tools and methods all readily available on the dark-web (including the manuals).

During the detailed discussions at our agileSI™ stand, it still amazes us that when it comes to SAP®, security people are so unaware of what is actually happening, what the real situation is with many companies when you look at it from a cyber defense point of view, and above all what do you do .....?

The vast number of these SAP® systems is highly interconnected and interoperate with many more external systems, it is a very specialist driven domain, where there is scarce resourcing anyway, typically work overloads and a very high complexity through an almost infinite possibilities of settings, parameters, combinations, customizings, configurations.

The risk of leaving backdoors open, wrong settings, vulnarable situations are REAL THREATS.

A good thing we got the chance to show these concerned (and rightfully so) SAP® customers a better way, that way is agileSI™.
