Data Privacy

How does SAP approach GenAI Adoption risks? 

Disruptive technologies are known to impact the security of existing environments in unknown ways. For this reason, SAP strives to balance technological advancement with appropriate caution. We have identified the following three major adoption risk categories: Human Risks, Technical Risks, and Exfiltration Risks.  SAP has formed an AI Security Taskforce, involving AI leaders from across the company, to identify and mitigate situational adoption risks. By identifying adoption risks early, SAP can better target mitigative efforts. For precise actions taken please have a look at our SAP Generative AI Cybersecurity Strategy whitepaper

How does SAP approach new vulnerability risks brought about by GenAI?

SAP takes an active approach to identifying vulnerabilities in new technologies. SAP Security Research and the global security community have identified several GenAI risks and vulnerabilities. The three greatest vulnerability risks related to Large Language Models (LLM) are Prompt Injection, Glitch Tokens and Adversarial Examples, and Hallucinations and Package Squatting. For precise actions taken please have a look at our SAP Generative AI Cybersecurity Strategy whitepaper

GenAI vulnerabilities are challenging to mitigate because of the open-ended nature of GenAI input. This presents a dilemma between constraining input for security at the cost of reduced capability. SAP manages this balance by implementing responsible AI use guidelines combined with strong product security standards and threat modeling practices. For precise actions taken please have a look at our SAP Generative AI Cybersecurity Strategy whitepaper

How does SAP approach new weaponization risks brought about by GenAI? 

As GenAI becomes more commoditized, it can and will fall into the hands of bad actors. SAP Security Research has determined that the practical threat of GenAI-assisted adversaries is currently uncertain. Given existing illegal marketplaces for malware, credentials, and for-hire services, many adversaries may choose not to directly utilize GenAI to develop attacks. 

Nevertheless, as technology evolves, theoretical GenAI-enabled attacks may become realized. SAP is actively preparing for the following most likely theoretical threats in our defensive strategy: AI-Assisted Attack Development, Intelligence Gathering, and Increase in Attack Sophistication. For precise actions taken please have a look at our SAP Generative AI Cybersecurity Strategy whitepaper
