Detecting the Hand Still in the Cookie Jar Breaking SAP in 59 seconds and how to respond with real time breach detection

SAP systems contain the most precious assets of an enterprise. They can however get lost, manipulated or destroyed in less than a minute. Examples are a) theft of sensitive customer data on a large scale by simple download, b) illegitimately elevated access rights: A user creates fictive other users, carries out illegal activities and deletes these users afterwards again, c) system take over by manipulating files on the level of the operating system which gives full access to all data on the SAP system.

Those typical security breaches in SAP systems can be detected in real-time by targeted log analysis in combination with SIEM. This allows to respond adequately to such events as well as to gather information on them for further data and system security measures.

Topics of this KuppingerCole Webinar:

  • Prevent – Detect – Respond: The new paradigm
  • Real Time Security (RTSI) and SIEM
  • Identity as the new security perimeter
  • Extending traditional SAP security with real time breach detection.
  • Identifying anomalous/suspicious network activities
  • Detecting strong indications of a security incident in progress

In the first part of the webinar Matthias Reinwarth, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will compare traditional IT security approaches focused on prevention and protection to new ones like Real Time Security Intelligence (RTSI) in general as well as Breach/Incident Response mechanisms. This shows why the classic approach needs to be extended quickly and targeted. Identity is the new perimeter.

In the second part Ralf Kempf, Managing Director at akquinet enterprise solutions will, based on real-life examples, provide a deeper insight into methodologies and technologies to implement real time breach detection in existing SAP environments. Additionally, he will explain how to adequately respond to such events as well as how to gather information on them using SIEM systems.
