Onapsis to Present at Suits and Spooks DC 2016
Sage Wagner will discuss the CISO imperative of properly securing SAP systems
Boston, MA – February 9, 2016 – Onapsis, the global experts in business-critical application security, today announced that top executive, Sage Wagner will present at Suits and Spooks. This annual conference is an innovative, limited attendance event bringing together thought leaders to discuss key security challenges. Located in Washington D.C., the event draws a cross section of public, private, defense, law enforcement and intelligence sector decision makers. As concern grows about the criticality of SAP vulnerabilities against the federal and public sectors, agencies are seeking strategies to operationalize their SAP security posture and ensure top protection against mission-critical data.
“Applications running on SAP within the public sector are considered some of the best ‘economics’ for cyber attackers from nation states, fraudsters and high-level hacking groups. As threats are becoming more advanced, these attackers are leveraging vulnerabilities that exist within SAP systems to access the most confidential information a government of public agency has,” said Sage Wagner, technical sales engineer, Onapsis.
In 2015, USIS, the largest commercial provider of background investigations to the federal U.S. government, was breached, most likely utilizing an SAP attack vector Onapsis had been tracking and warning enterprises about.
