Achieving SAP security in the age of hacking, GDPR, and cloud
Enterprise technology landscapes are littered with outdated legacy environments that were never designed to comply with current statutes governing data protection. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is complex and challenging, and other even more stringent compliance requirements exist for certain countries, regions, and industries. Furthermore, these requirements are often accompanied by potentially draconian penalties for non-compliance.
Are your systems updated? Is your system documentation complete and up to date? Do you have accurate, comprehensive knowledge of every interface in your landscape, whether it is in active use or not? These are tough challenges to meet, but any one of them can expose your enterprise to data security risks and potential fines.
SNP transformation software delivers key security capabilities that can make your environment secure.
Scan your entire system landscape to understand what interfaces are available and which ones are in use.
Slice, scramble, and anonymize sensitive data as system copies to support non-production systems. Slicing reduces the size of the non-production database, while scrambling and anonymization make sensitive data within the system copy secure.
Use an object-based update to synchronize documents and data significantly faster than with a full system copy, while rendering the update of entire test systems for synchronization with production unnecessary.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which protects the data privacy of EU citizens, is now in effect. Now, every company that retains personally identifying data of any EU citizen, regardless of where that company is located or headquartered, must meet GDPR compliance requirements. Personally identifying data refers to names and identifying information, but it may also include other types of information such as IP addresses. Enterprises not in compliance with GDPR are subject to heavy fines: up to €20 million or 4% of turnover, whichever is greater. Read on to discover how your company can better prepare itself.
