ERP Risk and Controls Automation

When it comes to ERP security controls, experience matters.

Vulnerabilities exist in all enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems because out of the box, these systems don’t come with the controls enabled that regulators, management and internal auditors demand.

It takes years of experience to identify and design optimal ERP controls, develop efficient ways to test them and remediate ERP control failures. Staying on the “cutting edge” of ERP security controls is difficult. Rather than continually training your staff and using their time to perform ERP risk assessments, it makes sense to partner with experienced professionals who do this work every day. That gives your employees the freedom to work on higher-value projects.
