SAP Compliance with GDPR

What is GDPR and how is it related to SAP

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation with which the European Commission intends to strengthen and unify data protection in the EU. It is going to be put into effect on 25 May 2018. According to the GDPR, a data protection breach is a result of an employee getting unauthorized access to data. SAP systems contain all mission-critical data, including personal data, such as names, SSNs, and addresses. The GDPR prescribes that this data must be protected. Companies must follow the GDPR regulations to ensure the security of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) stored in their systems.

How to ensure compliance with the GDPR

  • Audit your entire SAP environment to identify where all the personal data is stored
  • Determine who can have access to this data (users, roles, groups)
  • Detect misconfigurations and vulnerabilities that may allow unauthorized access to the data under the GDPR
  • Restrict access to personal data
  • Eliminate vulnerabilities and misconfigurations
  • Monitor security of your systems
