THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE ONLINE
UKISUG working in conjunction with SAP have created this event for our Cybersecurity community.
Cybersecurity within most companies has rapidly evolved from being an IT/Security topic to firmly landing on the desks of the rest of the board. The risks are so great that every executive, and every employee needs to be aware of the challenges and their responsibilities. *New figures from the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau show a 7 times spike in reported instances of cyber-crime in UK during the first 6 months of 2021 (£1.3Billion) compared to 2020. This is already a shocking statistic but it’s only the tip of the iceberg; the scale of cybercrime is impossible to accurately estimate because a lot of companies that are victims of it really don’t want it to become public. The financial damage can be significant but the reputational damage resulting from attacks can be long-reaching and ultimately more costly. In addition, regulations continue to evolve to protect shareholders and to protect the personal data and privacy for individuals. These regulations now have ‘teeth’ as Amazon recently found out when they were fined €¾Billion. The added vulnerabilities created by Covid and the exodus of employees to home offices have only proved catalysts to an already incredible situation.
UKISUG and SAP understand the awesome responsibilities this places on us; from ensuring customers data is protected in their datacentres to minimising code vulnerability in their software; from educating their staff to mould a ‘human firewall’ to ensuring that they have appropriate protective processes in place; from ensuring that they are continuously updating/patching their own tools to ensuring that they are offering customers world-leading solutions to protect their estates. For SAP customers, their ‘crown jewels’ are usually stored within their ERP systems and SAP know that cyberattacks are focusing more and more on ERPs** for exactly that reason.
