SAP Security Audit Guidelines

It should not be surprising that essential company data stored and processed in ERP systems are susceptible to various forms of assault. The reasons for this are straightforward: they are exceedingly complicated, have a high degree of personalization, and their owners, in many instances, seldom update security fixes.

Furthermore, when it comes to ERP security, we should remember that all security measures are distributed across three different areas: vulnerability management, source code scanning, and division of tasks. On the other hand, traditional security solutions only cover a relatively small portion of the relevant threats.

To properly safeguard your system, you must first understand what needs to be protected against in the first place. A comprehensive security evaluation of your SAP systems will assist you in determining the primary areas of emphasis that need to be addressed to protect your most essential assets from being compromised by cybercriminals.
