I am proud to announce our collaboration with IBM. This exciting new relationship authorizes IBM to bundle and sell ERP Maestro together with their leading portfolio of enterprise security products and services, globally. We are working with IBM because, together, we can better address the broader problem of cybersecurity threats that come from inside the organization. There’s a reason this is significant: according to IBM Security’s 2016 Cyber Security Intelligence Index, 60% of all cybersecurity attacks were carried out by insiders. With 87% of Forbes 2000 companies using SAP, and 76% of the world's transaction revenue flowing through SAP systems, the potential risk exposure is truly massive.
It's the start of a new year, and with that comes many new projects. For most companies running SAP this means annual audits/security reviews are ending and the remediation phase is just beginning. To help you start all those projects on the right foot we’ve lined up several webinars designed to provide your team with best practices and tools to help evaluate, improve and automate controls and security around SAP access.
Check out the schedule and register for one...or all! As a bonus, you'll receive one CPE credit from NASBA for each session you attend. Following is a sneak peek at the scheduled topics.
A couple of weeks ago our team was at SAP TechEd in Las Vegas. This was the first year we participated at this event, and it was quite interesting to see the increased interest and buzz around SAP security. Now, I realize "SAP security" is a very broad term - but it boils down to protecting your precious SAP data two ways: from external AND internal threats. Often the latter is overlooked - and that's why SAP access security is so important. So, if you were asked by your CIO how your SAP access security is looking what would you say? Are you ready for a year-end security audit? Are you ready for GDPR? These are all questions we can help you answer in our next live webcast on Thursday, October 19th.
The ERP Maestro offices are headquartered just outside of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. That put us right in the middle of ferocious Hurricane Irma this past weekend. Fortunately, aside from minor damage and inconveniences like loss of power and internet we’re extremely grateful to still be standing, and are hoping for the best for our neighbors in other parts of Florida as well as the Caribbean. With that said, as we’re getting back into the swing of things after a hectic week, we are now re-focusing our attention on the next exciting event to come in less than 2 weeks – SAP TechEd 2017 in Las Vegas...
