SAP cybersecurity experts first to provide complimentary service for companies looking to map out potential economic, financial, compliance, and lost data risks of an SAP cyberattack


Between keeping the business running, securing the environment, and managing governance and compliance, organizations also need to operationalize SAP cybersecurity.

Onapsis, the global experts in business-critical application security, today released the Onapsis Business Risk Illustration service. This complimentary service analyzes the business risk of an SAP cyberattack and the impact that it would have on an organization.

“We’re finding there are multiple groups within an organization that are tasked with the orchestration of SAP for business and who overlook cybersecurity. Infosec, SAP Basis Teams, as well Application security groups all have different responsibilities that are not aligned to an overall SAP security strategy. Between keeping the business running, securing the environment, and managing governance and compliance, organizations also need to operationalize SAP cybersecurity. Our Business Risk Illustration analyzes an organization's SAP risk posture, and helps teams operationalize best-in-class SAP cybersecurity programs,” said Jake Simpson, executive vice president of worldwide sales, Onapsis.

The Onapsis Business Risk Illustration service is performed on-site by Onapsis SAP cybersecurity experts with the goal of understanding an organization’s SAP landscape, the correlation between technical vulnerabilities and business risk, as well as compromises that have been made and the potential impact to the organization.

The results of the Onapsis Business Risk Illustration will allow an organization to map out their economic, financial, compliance and lost data risks to determine the best course of action. This analysis helps to effectively show the impact of vulnerabilities that can be used to compromise key data and business processes, and provides recommendations for how to prioritize and implement cross-functional remediation efforts over time.

“Thousands of SAP systems across the globe are subject to cyberattacks and information security teams are largely oblivious to the continuous tide of vulnerabilities in SAP systems. The business implications due to a compromised system are real and are often difficult to quantify. The Business Risk Illustration is the best way for security teams, as well as C-level executives to understand the risk exposure tied to the business impact,” said Juan Perez-Etchegoyen, CTO, Onapsis. “The important thing to note is that most attacks on SAP systems go unnoticed for months– if ever – and that in most cases, the impact of an SAP breach is analyzed after it is too late to respond efficiently, or to contain the compromise.”

Key Deliverables of the Onapsis Business Risk Illustration Include:

  • A listing of SAP cyberattacks and the impact that it can have on your organization.
  • Detailed summary report of all existing vulnerabilities found in scanned SAP systems.
  • Breakdown of how each discovery can be leveraged by an attacker.
  • Outline of potential impacts on your business when a weakness is exploited.
  • SAP cybersecurity program and remediation recommendations.
