“ERP Security. Myths, Problems, Solutions” from Source Barcelona 2010

Business applications like ERP, CRM, SRM and others are one of the major topics within the field of computer security as these applications store business data and any vulnerability in these applications will cause a significant monetary loss. Nonetheless people still do not give much attention to the technical side of the ERP Security. Platforms such as SAP, Oracle EBS, JD Edward’s are the most widespread platforms used for the enterprise system management and the most critical data storage and we will talk about them in our examples. In the first part of this talk we cover the common myths on the ERP security, like ERP security is a vendor’s problem, ERP is in the internal network and cannot be hacked from outside, ERP’s are very complex and specific and hackers can’t beat us, and of course — ERP is only about SOD, and dispel them. Then the talk will be about the problems of the ERP Security in common. As it is divided into different levels like Network, OS, Database, Application and Client sides we will cover all these areas. Finally, the first version of annual statistics — Business Application Vulnerability Statistics 2009, methodologies to assess ERP Systems and the ERPSCAN Online new service for checking security of SAP Frontend will be presented.
