SAP Cybersecurity Month 2022
SAP is strengthening our security culture and constantly adapting it to the new challenges that come with digital transformation, which is why, for the seventh year in a row, SAP is participating in Cybersecurity Month (CSM), to remind our employees about the importance of being vigilant against cyberthreats, while also encouraging tomorrow’s leaders about pursuing careers in cybersecurity.
With programs that run from September (China) through the end of October, SAP builds awareness about security with our 110,000-person global workforce.
About SAP Cybersecurity Month at SAP
SAP kicks off events and activities for the month, with our Chief Security Officer, joined by a host of experts, in a virtual event attended by thousands of employees from around the globe and continues the educational effort with special events all month long. Key security topics are covered including Vishing, Phishing, password protection, how to remain safe using social media and the importance of spotting deepfake technology. Learning about security is fun at SAP because we use gamification to engage employees featuring various fun games and prizes.
Per Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, the official campaign theme is “See Yourself in Cyber. Towards the end of October SAP will extend our efforts with the early talent community by co-hosting an Inter-University Cybersecurity “range” with SANS Institute, an organization dedicated to cybersecurity training and certifications, which has a wealth of resources available for users. SAP and the SANS Institute will host a Capture the Flag contest and a computer security competition for approximately 200 university students and special guests anticipated to participate. SAP’s Chief Trust Office is proactively working to engage students from the following Institutions: Atlanta University Center, Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Cornell, Drexel, Penn State Brandywine, Penn State Main Campus, Hampton, Norfolk State and Yale University.
