You already know enough about SAP ERP Security and realize a real impact of having insecure SAP implementation.
Recently, Crowd Research Partners have released ERP Cybersecurity Survey 2017 conducted across almost 2000 respondents of different roles from various industries. According to this research, 89% of security professionals predict that the number of attacks on SAP systems will increase. Moreover, the average damage of an SAP Security breach is estimated at $5 million. It’s unthinkable, isn’t it?
