Detecting white-collar cybercrime: SAP Forensics presented at TROOPERS 2013

by Juan Perez-etchegoyen, Mariano Nunez,

Summary : The largest organizations in the world rely on SAP platforms to run their critical processes and keep their business crown jewels: financial information, customers data, intellectual property, credit cards, human resources salaries, sensitive materials, suppliers and more. Everything is there – and attackers know it.
Now, the big question arises: Has your SAP system ever been hacked? Is it compromised today? If your answer is “no”, are you sure? Do you know what to look for? Unfortunately, most organizations do not have this knowledge today, which only empowers the bad guys.
For several years at Onapsis we have been researching on how cyber-criminals might be able to break into ERP systems, in order to help organizations better protect themselves. This has enabled us to gain a unique expertise on which are the most critical attack vectors and what kind of traces they leave (and don’t) over the victim SAP platforms.
Join us in the first public presentation on how to do a forensic analysis of an SAP system, looking for traces of a security breach. Learn where fingerprints may have been left, understand which are the available system tools that may help you and which are their limitations. Watch several live demos of security breaches and find out how you may be able to detect that they took place, helping you assess the business impact and track down the attacker.
