How to Reduce ERP Security Risks

Due to the massive amounts of valuable data stored in their systems, enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are a huge target by attackers. But thanks to technology, most ERP systems are prepared for these attacks. There are a few things, however, that you can do to help prevent hackers as well. Sean Michael Kerner, senior editor at eWEEK and Onapsis CTO JP Perez-Etchegoyen shares what’s behind ERP breaches and provided additional insight. When looking at ERP breaches, there are two things to consider: how the attacker got in and what they do once they have access. According to Perez-Etchegoyen, most people will not notice an ERP breach after an attacker has already gained access. Below are a number of things that organizations can and should do to limit the risk of attacks and improve ERP security:

  • Basic hygiene – find and fix vulnerabilities through patching or configuration changes
  • Define secure configurations
  • Repeatable processes – automate best practices for ERP updates
  • Manage and monitor the environment

These basic maintenance steps with your ERP systems could reduce the risk of being the target of attackers, securing your data with more more peace of mind.
