Cybersecurity is a broad field. Starting with the technical infrastructure of companies and extending to the business processes in SAP systems. Such projects must be well planned and prepared.

You want to document internal system revisions and authorisation monitoring? The new cockpit of the Audit Information System offers you some practical functions. There are several legal requirements that require a regular audit of your SAP system. As a general rule, there are internal and external auditors who carry out such audits. In addition, user and permission management can set up their own monitoring of permissions to avoid unpleasant surprises during audits. Auditor documentation is often standardised in the case of external auditors; for the internal audit or your own monitoring, however, in many cases a suitable documentation is missing. In spite of automated evaluations, external auditors often also demand an activation of the Audit Information System (AIS). We will show you how to activate the AIS and take advantage of the new AIS cockpit.
