SAP Solution Offerings

SAP Security Risk Assessment:

SoD conflicts can expose an organization to risk ranging from loss of business to fraud.  A SoD conflict occurs when an end user has access to transactions that cut across functional areas that should be separated, for example a sole employee that can change or create a vendor record and can issue a check.  Skoda Minotti Risk Advisory Services takes an efficient high level approach to analyzing your user roles to determine the level of exposure your organization has to SoD conflicts.  Need help with a risk assessment; contact us to see how we can assist your organization.

SAP Security Role Engineering or Redesigning:

Organizations need to redesign their user roles when they have reorganized their operations or the way they process data within SAP.  For many companies redesigning user roles is simply because the roles were not designed properly in the first place and contain inefficiencies and SoDs.  The best time to think about user roles and the risk associated with them is when a company is migrating from a legacy system to SAP.  Implementing SAP with the proper user roles can make the transition run smoother, reduce risk and in the long run save money by avoiding costly redesign efforts.  Skoda Minotti Risk Advisory Services assists organizations with SAP security Role Engineering or redesign projects to provide benefits such as:

  • Increase risk management awareness and implementation
  • Reduction of fraud exposure
  • Reduction of costs for future redesign projects
  • Compliance with regulations such as SOX 404

Monitoring and Maintaining SAP Segregation of Duties:

Have you evaluated your company’s SoD conflicts since implementation?  SAP is very complex software with more levels of security than just transactions; there are objects, fields, BAPIs to name a few.  Our consultants have implemented GRC software within a SAP environment and where the company thought they had minimal exposure to risk, in reality they found they had over 650K SoDs.  Organizations need to develop a plan to monitor and maintain the security of their SAP system.  Skoda Minotti Risk Advisory Services can assist your organization with developing a proven security program.  We can provide guidance with GRC software and assist you with building a security team to continue the process.
