To drive growth, Solvay’s acquisition strategy integrates new data and processes into the organisation. Due to the nature of its business there is a high risk of industrial espionage and to protect this sensitive data stringent IT security levels are required. The firm must also comply with France’s Military Programming Law.
Solvay wanted to build and implement a plan for SAP security management that would provide comprehensive visibility of potential weaknesses in its Segregation of Duties and internal process controls. To reduce vulnerability and cyber risks which threatened its SAP platforms, the chemical leader needed to anticipate potentially fraudulent activities within its business processes executed in SAP.
