The Top Five Risks to PeopleSoft Data: What Are They & How You Can Protect Yourself
Presented by Greg Sosna, Appsian Security
2020’s rapid shift to remote and hybrid access would simultaneously introduce new levels of complexity, along with an expanded threat surface. With most organizations having to manage these threats on the fly, solutions like Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and Multi-Factor Authentication became table stakes. However, most organizations quickly realized that enabling application security was not the same as enabling data security. In fact, they are completely different disciplines.
The fact of the matter is traditional information security strategies focus on networks and applications, leaving very little thought to how to protect the data inside the application – especially data at the UI/transaction level. Each day, unnecessary amounts of PII and business data can, and are, being accessed in ways that put your organization at risk. How can you manage those risks? What are they?
In this session, we will walk you through the Top Five Risks to PeopleSoft data that bypass traditional network and application layer controls. We will also provide you with insights and recommendations on how you can mitigate these risks before they become a massive liability.
We will specifically address:
•The key differences between application security and data security
•How bad actors can bypass traditional application security controls to exploit data
•Where are the key visibility gaps within PeopleSoft transactions that are most frequently exploited
•How you can leverage your existing identity & access management and logging solutions to start managing data risks immediately

Presented by Monica Ellis, HyperGen Inc

This presentation will look at the ELK stack and how each element can be used in PeopleSoft.
