Business transformation … Enabled by SAP S/4HANA
Why security and controls should not be an afterthought
By 2027, businesses must switch to SAP S/4HANA if they want to continue using an SAP system. Businesses are looking to SAP S/4HANA to provide improved operational functions, such as access across multiple devices with an enhanced user experience and customer-friendly design, and a simplified data model allowing businesses to process high volumes of data as well as embedded analytics allowing for real-time business analysis.
Security and controls play a vital part in these transformations. Main reasons include:
- Unauthorised access to sensitive data which could lead to significant fines
- Design and architectural flaws
- Too little focus on automation and preventive controls
- Expanded attack surface.
