SAP Compliance with ISO27001

What is ISO 27001 and how is it related to SAP

ISO 27000 is a series of standards published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The series provides best practice recommendations on information security management within an organization.

Organizations use the standards to ensure complete protection of information throughout all of their business systems and to prove their reliability to partners, customers, and the government.

ISO 27001 is the best-known standard. It is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS).

SAP systems support execution of mission-critical business processes and must implement organization-wide requirements of ISO 27001.

How can you ensure compliance with the ISO 27001

There are several steps concerning SAP systems that organizations should take to meet the ISO 27001 standard:

  • Audit your SAP environment in the scope of the ISMS
  • Identify information assets in SAP and users with access to this data (users, roles, groups)
  • Detect misconfigurations and vulnerabilities which can be used to get unauthorized access to information assets
  • Perform a security risk assessment
  • Select controls to be implemented and applied:
    • Restrict access to information assets
    • Fix vulnerabilities and misconfigurations
  • Enable monitoring of SAP security posture and ISO 27001 compliance
