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

This topic will be hosted  by Dudley Cartwright, CEO of Soterion

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.

What to Expect from the Session

Organisations have been struggling to derive value from their GRC investment since the inception of GRC solutions. Coupled with this, business users often perform compliance tasks with minimal intent and/or consideration to the impact on business. The technical nature and complexity of SAP security and GRC means that ownership typically remains an IT problem.

In this session we will articulate the techniques and strategies to successfully shift access risk from IT to the business, thus enhancing business accountability and buy-in. This will ultimately improve an organisation’s overall risk awareness and ability to manage their risk.

Emile Steyn will share his extensive experience in the field of Access Risk management. The GRC challenge is growing with more incidents taking place around the globe. Organisations will benefit from learning how SAP access risk is related to business risk and addressing it as a business risk leads to enhanced accountability and a security culture. Emile will share tips and tricks that will benefit the audience in how they address the challenges in their organisation.

Elevating the Role of GRC in Your Organisation
Wednesday 28 July, 2:20 PM – 2:55 PM AEST

Join our CEO, Dudley Cartwright as he discusses how to add significant value to your organisation by elevating the status of your GRC

Many organisations have implemented a GRC solution but find that it is highly under-utilised. In many cases, the GRC solution is predominantly used as a back-end solution by the technical team, with minimal or no involvement from the business.

How does one go about elevating the status of the GRC solution (and team) that it not only becomes integral in the business-as-usual processes, but also adds significant value to the organisation

Driving Governance at Bridgestone
Wednesday 28 July, 1:40 PM – 2:15 PM AEST

In this session, Jess Barnes, a Senior Business Analyst – SAP at Bridgestone Australia will take you through a journey of how Bridgestone used to maintain segregation of duties, the problems they faced, and why Soterion is the solution that they adopted.

It is unavoidable that there are risks in every business. It’s crucial to be able to identify segregation of duties and apply mitigating controls against the risks. Bridgestone Australia & New Zealand use Soterion as a tool to ensure that they met J-Sox audit requirements and authorisation standards.

One of the key functions of the tool is that it allows Bridgestone to run a simulation before a role is created or access is assigned to users, then highlight conflicts if any. Soterion software provides a short description of why this change will cause segregation of duties. The tool has increased the visibility of risks in the business and assists Bridgestone in reviewing controls.

Mastering SAP RSA is home to three independent conferences: HR & Payroll, Finance & Technologies. Your ticket to Mastering SAP is a ticket to three amazing days of content, networking and knowledge-sharing online. Bringing together SAP customers, partners and thought-leaders to celebrate the talent, technology, innovations and ideas that are literally transforming the way we work.

Join our CEO, Dudley Cartwright as he discusses the topic of Data Privacy and how one is able to manage this in SAP. Data Privacy regulations (POPI, GDPR etc) are having an impact on almost every organisation around the world. Privacy by design is now expected as part and parcel of your security framework. As owners of the data subjects (Customers, Vendors, Business Partners, Employees), it is critical that you understand what data is deemed sensitive, for what purposes it is being used, how it should be controlled and who should have access to it. Anything less, unfortunately, carries the risk of severe penalties and fines.

In this session, Dudley will share some of his experience of the activities and tasks typically associated with a data privacy project – where to begin, key stakeholders, objectives and deliverables, and how this can be fast-tracked using Soterion’s Data Discovery module.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand the activities and tasks associated with a data privacy project
  • How to easily identify whether your SAP system is storing personal data
  • How to manage any sensitive personal data going forward – data privacy by design

In our second session, Emile Steyn, a Senior SAP Security Consultant at Soterion, will be speaking and sharing the key steps to implementing effective GRC. Effective GRC is measured by how well business users carry out their access risk management activities.

Join industry experts to find out how you can keep your data protected and optimise your SAP security.
