Review: SAP System Security Guide

It’s no secret that security threats, both internal and external, are on the rise. Luckily, so are the methods for preventing them. SAP Press’ new guide answers questions that Basis administrators may not even know they have about how to keep their SAP system secure.

What will you learn?

SAP System Security Guide isn’t this publisher’s first foray into data security, but it is their first comprehensive guide for both identifying and eliminating security threats to your SAP NetWeaver system. It’s also a system administrator’s first step to learning how to implement a strong security policy.

Attempting to cover the entirety of a Basis security administrator’s role is a daunting task, but this guide manages it beautifully with in-depth sections on backend security, identity and access management, and legal compliance.

This book, like any good security plan, is layered with the tools and strategies necessary to succeed. Readers will unwrap layer after layer of knowledge to help them master access management, network security, authorizations, and more, until they conclude with a sound understanding of the fundamentals of SAP system security.
