Case Study: How Orkla Made Cybersecurity an Integral Part of Its SAP S/4HANA Implementation

Prioritizing cybersecurity is a must for businesses investing in SAP solutions. Many organizations fall short of appropriate levels of security and direct involvement of their equivalent of a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). How can companies migrating to SAP S/4HANA make SAP cybersecurity a priority? Where do they start, and what do they protect?
Orkla ASA, a Norwegian conglomerate operating globally, optimized its SAP S/4HANA investment by ensuring that its personnel had solid SAP cybersecurity skills, placing those team members in the center of the security organization, connected to all functional and technical teams. With that foundation in place, Orkla next included an SAP cybersecurity baseline in all plans to avoid any diversions as its SAP S/4HANA migration moved toward the testing and go-live phases.
Attend this session to learn from Orkla how your organization can:
- Ensure that your systems are protected adequately before migrating to SAP S/4HANA
- Set your baseline and get security on board at the very beginning of the project, then apply solutions for implementing your baseline
- Put your SAP Security team at the forefront of your security initiatives
