A Crash Course On SAP-Specific Cyber Attacks &
How to Defend Against Them

Live Online Training
Fundamentals of Cryptography in Business Systems  

Sound knowledge of protection concepts, different implementation styles and attack vectors are the ‘basics’ when it comes to safeguarding cryptographic systems. Getting great at the basics is one of the most important ways to protect against cyber threats and it doesn't take as long as you think. Over the span of 5 hours, IT experts with different disciplines learn together how to get ‘great’ at managing cryptographic systems in your business IT environment. Structured to be hands-on, security topics are broken down into bite sized concepts with interactive exercises, and demonstrations that make learning directly applicable and easier to recall later. On top of that you will be able ask questions along the way, receive direct feedback, and participate in a ‘ask-anything’ session with your instructor.

A Taste of What You Will Learn:

  • Understand the protection capabilities of different kinds of cryptographic systems and the challenges using them
  • Through real-world examples you will learn the most common mistakes people make when protecting cryptographic systems how to avoid them
  • Learn how you can compile criteria for the protection traits by regulations, independent advisory and business needs your cryptographic system require
  • Gain practical experience in creating a cryptographic system by creating a public key infrastructure by applying the different steps involved to understand the obstacles for creating and hardening such a system
  • Find out how you can assess the most important parameters of cryptographic system and what questions are relevant to ask to verify if a certain system meets protection goals

For this course you will use a lab environment hosted by us to practice. The lab provides access to an SAP S/4HANA landscape consisting of two stages and a SAP NetWeaver Java application server. You can access to environment by a virtual desktop system with all necessary tools preinstalled.

In addition you will need:

  • The latest version of the OpenSSL software for your operating system
  • A HTML5 ready browser preferably Edge, Chrome, Firefox
  • (Optional) Zoom
