It’s the stuff of corporate nightmares and can keep executives up at night; the threat of cyber breaches and attacks that can put a company’s data and reputation at risk or even make business processes come to a sudden, screeching halt. And there are no simple or easy answers. The cybersecurity landscape is volatile. Companies know they need to protect against cyber breaches and manage the risk of information theft, data modification, and the resulting disruption of business processes. It’s critical that they understand how to prevent cyber attacks and handle mounting threats.
One key question is, “Do they have the right infrastructure and methods in place to effectively mitigate this ever-shifting risk?”
With 85% of the world’s business systems running on SAP technology, SAP has focused increasing efforts on this issue. The company is holding an upcoming #askSAP session on how to improve approaches to cybersecurity risk and governance in our current era of increasing digitization. During this community call, which is interactive, SAP will give an overview of how companies should rethink their security strategy as they embrace the digital economy – so they can protect business applications and improve risk and governance programs.
Leading the discussions of this board-level topic will be SAP executives Michael Golz (CIO, Americas at SAP) and Kevin McCollom (Group Vice President, SAP Solutions for Governance, Risk and Compliance). Moderated by access and cyber governance expert Erin Hughes (Greenlight Technologies), the session will cover: 1) The state of cybersecurity threats and evolving security perspectives 2) A preview of SAP’s security strategy 3) SAP’s perspective on cyber risk and governance, and business application security 4) An overview of solutions
Because it’s a community call, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions through live chat or Twitter using the #askSAP hashtag.
