How to protect your critical data leaving the SAP environment?
According to IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach Report 2020, the global average total cost of a data breach is $3.86 M. Data breaches and security incidents are becoming increasingly costly.
SAP forms the digital core of the enterprises today and SAP is the repository where critical, sensitive, and confidential data across different business functions is stored.
This data is protected inside SAP application as SAP takes dedicated measures to ensure its safety. The data is safe as long it is within the SAP system.
But what happens to the data once it leaves the SAP environment?
Business users in their normal course of activities export sensitive data from SAP applications to generate reports, spreadsheets, PDFs, and other documents.
Businesses transact a large amount of sensitive data with partners, suppliers, and vendors across the supply chain for their day-to-day operations.
Once the data leaves the SAP systems, there is no visibility or governance or protection for the extracted data from SAP.
This increases the risk of data breaches and data misuse that can cost companies millions and affect the brand reputation.
Recently, SECUDE in collaboration with Wipro conducted a joint webinar on the Need for protecting the sensitive data leaving the SAP environment.
Key takeaways of the webinar:
- How to audit all data exports and downloads of critical SAP data
- How to prevent data from leaving SAP environment through accidental or intentional data leaks
- How to protect SAP data from data leaks and theft by applying automated customizable classification labels

The webinar helped participants why they need to think beyond perimeter security when it comes to protecting sensitive data.
As data constantly moves beyond IT boundaries, the data must be protected at all stages- data at rest, data in transit, and data in use.
Participants included IT security & SAP security experts from the United States and Europe.
