Ponemon Institute is pleased to present the results of Uncovering the Risks of SAP Cyber Breaches sponsored by Onapsis. The purpose of this study is to understand the threat of an SAP cyber breach and how companies are managing the risk of information theft, modification of data and disruption of business processes. The companies represented in this study say their SAP platform has been breached an average of two times in the past 24 months.
We surveyed 607 IT and IT security practitioners who are involved in the security of SAP applications used by their organizations to manage business operations and customer relations. The most common SAP products deployed are enterprise management (ERP), technology platforms (backbone), financial and data management and customer relationship management (CRM).
The respondents in this study understand the risk of an SAP cyber breach. Sixty percent of respondents say the impact of information theft, modification of data and disruption of business processes on their company’s SAP would be catastrophic (17 percent of respondents) or very serious (43 percent of respondents).
However, many senior executives are underestimating the risk and do not have an understanding of the impact of the value of the data that could be lost from the SAP system, according to respondents... only 21 percent of respondents say senior leadership is aware of SAP cybersecurity risks, but 56 percent of respondents say a security or data breach resulting from insecure SAP applications is likely (100 percent – 44 percent of respondents)
