Independent Market Survey Reveals 64% of ERP Deployments Have Been Breached in the Last 24 Months

Share

Onapsis, the leader in business application protection, today announced the findings of a new IDC survey titled ‘ERP Security: The Reality of Business Application Protection’ sponsored by Onapsis. According to the sponsored survey of 430 IT decision makers, ERP applications are ‘critical’ to business operations. Sixty-four percent of the 191 decision makers surveyed whose organizations rely on SAP or Oracle E-Business Suite confirmed that their deployments have had an ERP-related breach in the last 24 months.

“Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite and SAP (ECC) can be foundational for businesses. A breach of such critical ERP applications can lead to unexpected downtime, increased compliance risk, diminished brand confidence and project delays,” said Frank Dickson, Program Vice President, Cybersecurity Products with IDC. “Cyber miscreants seem to be indiscriminate when it comes to ERP systems, having an appetite for all types of data, which, if in the wrong hands, could be detrimental to the business in terms of revenue and reputation.”

Among the 64 percent of enterprises that have experienced breaches of large ERP platforms in the last 24 months, reported compromised information includes sales data (50 percent), HR data (45 percent), customer personally identifiable information (41 percent), intellectual property (36 percent) and financial data (34 percent). Additional findings of the sponsored survey include:

  • 78 percent of respondents report that ERP application users are audited every 90 days or more
  • 74 percent of SAP and Oracle EBS applications are connected to the internet
  • 56 percent of C-level executives are concerned or very concerned about moving ERP applications to the cloud

“The findings of this independent survey should raise questions at the Board level about the adequacy of internal controls to prevent cyberattacks and the level of auditing taking place. The lack of these controls is one way for cyber insurance companies to deny claims,” said Larry Harrington, former Chairman of the Global Board of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA). “The information compromised most often according to this research is the highest regulated in today’s business ecosystem. Most concerning is the popularity of sales, financial data and PII, all of which should raise flags about the possibility of insider trading, collusion and fraud.”

Onapsis has published a blog titled ‘ERP Security & IT General Controls: Questions Every Organization Needs to Ask’ to help enterprise application, GRC and cyber-security teams assess their organizations ERP risk and compliance controls. The blog outlines best practices for cross-departmental collaboration and the types of information that will produce the most satisfactory assessment for internal and external auditors.

Methodology
To evaluate the state of securing these applications, IDC surveyed 430 IT decision makers who were knowledgeable about their organization's ERP applications and the protections provided to them.
