As cyber-attacks targeting business-critical applications such as SAP are increasing, security professionals using 'traditional' methods are being asked to re-think their current approach. Evolving threats including viruses, malware, Trojans and other exploits are becoming more advanced than ever before, making it vital to have a preventative plan in place before an attack occurs. Effectively securing business-critical data is the now result of meticulous strategic planning and the implementation of preventative and responsive solutions that ensure protection.

Given the amount of time and effort it takes to learn SAP, information security professionals often have trouble understanding where to begin securing these massive and complex implementations. In order to help educate professionals on how to implement effective SAP security solutions, Onapsis will be hosting "A Security Geek's Guide to SAP" on February 12th. During this webcast, Alex Horan, Director of Product Management will discuss key initiatives to for understanding SAP security solutions. He will cover:

  • Introduction to SAP Security
  • Why traditional security measures are no longer effective for preventing against attacks
  • Testing SAP's attack surface
  • How to pinpoint gaps in current compliance and security efforts
  • How to integrate effective SAP security initiative into your current security management program
