It is not a secret, that nowadays all of the companies’ business processes run on Enterprise Business applications, which are big systems, that store and process all of the companies’ critical data. Any information an attacker – is he a cybercriminal, an industrial spy or a competitor – might want is stored there. Information can include financial, customer or public relations, intellectual property, personally identifiable information and more. Industrial espionage, sabotage and fraud or insider embezzlement may be very effective if targeted at the victim’s Business application system and cause significant damage to the business. There are many types of those applications like ERP’s CRM’s SRM’s ESB’s and others. Some of them store data and some of them like Enterprise Service Bus are for transferring critical data.
Unfortunately there is still very few information about Security of those systems, like how to break them during penetration tests and how to securely configure them. Most of public research was focused on SAP ERP applications but during the sessions of the presented training tutors will also cover other software like Service Buses, CRM, Process Integration, SRM, as well as less discussed SAP solutions such as: SAP HANA, SAP Business Objects and of course products from other vendors such as Oracle Peoplesoft, Oracle EBS, Oracle JD Edwards, MS Dynamics and some of the less popular and custom business applications.
The interest in the security of the enterprise business applications and ERP systems has grown increasingly high in past few years. In 2014 it is not surprising anymore to see not only brief reports or workshops, but also the whole series of trainings and sections on these topics in the most appreciated info-security events in the world. The list of these events includes but not limited to Black Hat, Troopers and Nullcon. Best of all this fact proves the significance of such researches for the modern Enterprises Security.
The training Enterprise Business Application Security: Attack and Defense will take place at Black Hat on Saturday, August 2, 2014 and Sunday, August 3, 2014 at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, NV USA. For more information about event and for booking please follow this link
