Your SAP data security is more at risk than ever. Cybercriminals are taking advantage of this period of uncertainty, with remote working and overstretched IT teams increasing the risks of your data falling into the wrong hands. 

Our virtual conference zooms in on this challenge with a range of sessions you can’t afford to miss, from simple steps you can take now to reduce your risks, to in-depth discussions on data privacy compliance. 

Join industry experts and other companies like yours to find out how you can optimise your SAP security and keep your data safe.

REGISTERVIEW AGENDA

This is generally the time of year when we are buzzing with excitement to meet you at our annual User Group event. Sadly, with the current climate, we can't meet in person. Following client requests, we're offering a virtual event of bite-sized pre-recorded sessions and interviews, available over a four-day period. Be inspired by global experts from the comfort of your home!
