One of the highlights of the Sapphire conference earlier this month was the insightful session on SAP security delivered by Gordon Muehl, Senior Vice President of Product Security at SAP. A recording of the session can be viewed below. The session highlighted the threat presented to Internet-enabled SAP systems by external agents and stressed the importance of protecting systems against Web-based attacks such as verb tampering. According to SAP, such measures should include secure software development procedures and training for developers, as well as independent code reviews performed by specialized security resources to validate programs before release. SAP also recommends a proactive patch management strategy that includes regular monitoring of SAP Security Notes and the rapid application of high priority patches.
