On the Cover
A global shift to remote working in 2020 introduced new risks, vulnerabilities, and security issues to the business landscape. The roles of security and access management have been elevated to ensure not only compliance, but a concept taken for granted prior to the pandemic: business continuity. The cover story in this edition of SAPinsider Magazine explores how Lundbeck, a global pharmaceutical company headquartered in Denmark, ensured the business could streamline its development of specialty therapies for people with disorders of the central nervous system by moving to an automated security platform capable of performing in a hybrid landscape. Lundbeck’s Solutions Architect for Access and Security, Kirsten Kjerkegaard, shares her perspective on page 22, about how trends in SAP and security have changed during her career, one being a greater emphasis on having a global security system in place.
