In 2023, the focus of cybersecurity strategies for SAP systems shifted away from ransomware and malware attacks to addressing unpatched systems, concentrating on addressing system vulnerabilities over attack vectors. Exploring the details behind these changes, SAPinsider revealed some interesting in year-over-year trends during its third year of research on cybersecurity threats. Increasing regulatory compliance requirements, hybridization of environments, and economic pressures all played a role in influencing this shift in thinking.
The survey asked the respondents to rank the top cybersecurity threats to their SAP systems, ranging from most to least important. Ransomware attacks, unpatched systems, and credentials compromise were ranked as the most important threats to systems, similar to last year. These three are interconnected when it comes to root cause analysis. Credentials compromise is the gateway for threat actors to infiltrate systems and plant ransomware or malware. Failure to regularly apply patches exposes vulnerabilities that allow hackers to exfiltrate data, plant malicious code, or traverse across the network.
