Why You Should Care About SAP Cybersecurity: Evolution of the Threat Landscape

Evolution of the Threat Landscape

We hear about cybersecurity in the news, and we read about it and see it in our daily work, but why should we care about cybersecurity with regard to SAP applications? SAP applications host the most sensitive and critical information for the biggest organizations in the world; therefore, these applications have become a key target for attackers.

But it was not always like this. Historically, SAP applications were treated more like siloed solutions, guarded behind the firewall and out of the scope of the IT security team. This approach resulted in a gap of responsibilities and control between the applications teams and the IT security teams — two groups that typically speak different languages.

As time progressed and SAP technology became more widespread and open across organizations, attackers also started paying attention to this vulnerability as shown in numerous news reports. As we move forward, more and more events will occur involving SAP applications; therefore, we must be proactive and prepare for a breach before it happens.
