Cybersecurity and Data Protection Threats

What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity at SAP pertains to the measures and systems SAP has implemented to secure its own operations, as well as the suite of solutions SAP offers to its clients to manage their cybersecurity.

At SAP, cybersecurity refers to the measures used to protect the company's cloud and on-premise infrastructures. This includes protection of customer data, intellectual property, and other vital information assets against potential cyber threats.

Cybersecurity Risks to Organizations

Cyberattacks pose many risks to organizations: loss of reputation, loss of intellectual property, disruption of operations, data loss, and many others. The threat environment is changing and becomes more dangerous as the number of interconnected systems, mobile applications, and new technologies change the way users interact with the environment of an organization.

While every IT department works hard to protect company infrastructure and company systems, many groups find they have serious blind spots. Many identify a lack of time or resources to adequately analyze and monitor every event and admit that they cannot answer questions like:

  • Are there unexpected activities in the landscape?
  • Are there ongoing attacks?
  • Who is involved?
  • What end-to-end attack actions took place?
  • Was there damage or data loss?

SAP Enterprise Threat Detection can help us answer the above questions.
