Onapsis Security Platform Provides SAP Customers with Automated GDPR Compliance Capabilities
the global experts in SAP and Oracle (News - Alert) application cybersecurity and
compliance, today announced new automated product functionality in the
Onapsis Security Platform (OSP) specific to GDPR compliance mandates.
This functionality will allow Onapsis customers to quickly evaluate if
SAP (News - Alert) systems are meeting the requirements of this mandate to protect EU
data subjects information. As with any new policy, the first stage is to
identify those SAP systems that are in scope. In the case of GDPR, these
are any systems that process, handle or store user information.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation with
an enforcement date in May 2018 concerning the protection of EU data
subjects' personal and sensitive information. Research conducted by the
UK & Ireland SAP User Group shows 86%
of SAP users do not fully understand how GDPR will affect their SAP
landscapes and how to reach compliance. It is almost certain GDPR
will have an impact, in some way or another, on any company large enough
to have chosen SAP, which touches all aspects of a business. In fact
almost every SAP system includes GDPR's core element: personal data.
"In speaking to our customers, we know that GDPR is a complicated
mandate and many organizations are struggling to determine if or how
their SAP landscapes are relevant. With this in mind, Onapsis's
newly released audit policy within the Onapsis Security Platform (OSP)
automatically evaluates any SAP system through the lens of the data
protection requirements of GDPR. This includes both data at rest, data
in transit and the assessment of data access or authorizations,"
commented Alex Horan, Director of Product Management, Onapsis.
Through the execution of this new policy, enterprises leveraging OSP can
identify SAP systems tht do not have adequate protection of the data
and processes. Users will receive detailed guidance on how to address
these security gaps. As new systems are brought in, scoped and tagged as
GDPR, they will automatically be included in the next audit.
For further understanding of GDPR and how it affects SAP, download the
recently released white paper from the Onapsis Research Labs titled, "SAP
and GDPR: Keeping Your Organization Ahead of the Upcoming EU Law."
Onapsis's Director of Product Management, Alex Horan, will host a live
webcast to help organizations understand the complex issue of GDPR and
SAP on December 19th at 9:00am and 1:00pm EST. Register
