SAP security transformation

Increasing regulations, ever-evolving technologies, centralization of functions within businesses, and the increased threat of security breaches have resulted in application security becoming more critical and complex to manage. An ineffective SAP security design not only can lead to operational inefficiencies but can also introduce risk.

KPMG’s SAP security solutions contain tested methodologies and accelerators that can help you establish and deploy an optimal SAP security strategy that eliminates risk, is sustainable, scalable, and flexible.

SAP cyber security

KPMG’s SAP cybersecurity and patch management capabilities will address the greatest risk facing organizations today, a cyber attack. The volume and sophistication of threats has increased exponentially, leading to a wave of data breaches involving the theft of customer information and intellectual property. Existing security and governance strategies are simply no longer adequate to protect the interconnected SAP landscape from such threats. KPMG offers an approach that will secure the SAP landscape by streamlining the process for evaluating and applying patches and developing a holistic SAP security and governance strategy that protects the entire SAP technology stack to address evolving risk.

As an organization, you want to know whether you have an adequate approach to SAP cybersecurity.
