Presentation 1: SAP User Access Provisioning (IAM vs GRC) – Understand your options

This topic will be hosted  by Dudley Cartwright, CEO of Soterion and Karen Maier, Senior Consultant at DXC

Assigning SAP user access via an Identity Access Management solution versus the Access Control (GRC) solution. The pros and cons of both provisioning methodologies, as well as when to consider a hybrid approach. Identity Access Management solutions can bring about great efficiencies in the user access provisioning process but are less well equipped to identify access risk. On the other hand, access control solutions are well equipped to identify access risk but are less powerful at user provisioning.

What you’ll learn in this session:

In this session we will discuss some scenarios where the benefits of provisioning SAP access using an IAM solution outweigh that of GRC solution, as well as other scenarios where provisioning access using the Business Role concept (of the access control / GRC) solution are more beneficial than that of the IAM solution.

Gain an understanding of the advantages / disadvantages of each solution for user provisioning and user access reviews with an understanding of your organisation’s business objectives, be in a position to recommend the most appropriate provisioning strategy for your organisation

Presentation 2: Scaling the SunRice group’s security landscape for change

This topic will be presented by Ben Murphy, IT Architecture Manager at SunRice Group

In April 2019, the SunRice Group listed on the ASX. To adhere to the stringent compliance requirements that came along with that listing SunRice reviewed and expanded their GRC footprint in the SAP space. Already using the Access Risk Manager tool from Soterion to control their Segregation of Duties (SOD) risks, SunRice have now implemented the Elevated Rights and License Auditing modules from the same suite of products.

SunRice recently instigated a role review with the aim of tidying up over 20 years of role development and better structuring roles in preparation for the arrival of SAP S/4HANA. The review achieved tighter control of SOD risk without needing massive systems, enablement of production troubleshooting for the functional and Basis teams in a user and auditor friendly way, streamlined annual SAP License audit process and a reduction in SAP Professional license allocation.

Ben will explain:

  • Why you don’t need to write your own SOD/GRC tool! (Your ABAPers may be awesome, but they can do better things with their time)
  • You may not need as many SAP Professional Licenses as you think you do
  • The next time your auditors ask you about your IT Team’s access in Production, be ready.
