In this session we will discuss the typical challenges facing organisations with their SAP security and GRC, and how best to address them. Some of these challenges include activities such as: 

  • Policies and Procedures
  • In-appropriate access

i20 Session: How to Create Appropriate Business Roles for our Users

This topic will be hosted  by Emile Steyn,  Business Unit Director of Soterion Benelux

Business Roles are a collection of roles from multiple SAP systems. The Business Role methodology can significantly improve the efficiency of the user provisioning process. However, if these roles are not correctly defined, they can end up providing the users with very in-appropriate access, putting the organisation at unnecessary fraud risk.

In this session we will explain the process of accurately defining/building business roles so that they provide appropriate access for the SAP users. This will allow the organisation to achieve their desired objective of improving the efficiency of the Joiner – Mover- Leaver process in a controller manner where users are assigned appropriate access for their job function.

More about our presentations:

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.

About Mastering SAP

The Mastering SAP conference is a platform for customers, partners, and technology experts to gather, find answers to pressing challenges, showcase solutions, and demonstrate how to harness the power of SAP.

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.
