BOSTON, Mass., April 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Onapsis, the global experts in business-critical application security and SAP cybersecurity solutions, announced today that co-founder and CEO Mariano Nunez has been selected to present "Attacks on Crown Jewels: SAP Vulnerabilities and Exploits," in the first ever crowdsourced track at RSA Conference 2015, to be held April 20-24 at Moscone Center, San Francisco. RSA Conference introduced crowdsourced submissions as a new session type for this year's conference to give the public an opportunity to vote on sessions of interest. The presentations are unique, timely and topical and are delivered in a highly interactive format. Nunez is one of only twelve presenters chosen out of hundreds of submissions.

What: "Attacks on Crown Jewels: SAP Vulnerabilities and Exploits": Learn which are the most critical SAP security vulnerabilities, public exploits and defence strategies. Learn through live attack demos, open source tools and war stories how to check whether your company is securing everything but its crown jewels. Understand how attackers can easily steal confidential data, modify critical information and disrupt key business processes.

When: Wednesday, April 22 at 11:30 AM-12:20 PM PST

Where: Moscone Center - North Room 133; CRWD-W04 (all badge types can attend crowdsourced sessions)

Who: Mariano Nunez, Co-Founder & CEO, Onapsis is a respected authority in the business-critical application security field. Nunez was the first to publicly present on cybersecurity risks affecting SAP platforms and how to mitigate them. With a background in cybersecurity, penetration testing and SAP security assessments he discovered and helped fix several critical vulnerabilities in SAP applications and developed the first open source SAP and ERP penetration testing frameworks. Nunez is a requested speaker at BlackHat and other information security conferences; has been interviewed and featured in mainstream media such as CNN, Reuters, IDG, New York Times, eWeek and PCWorld; and has been distinguished by the MIT TR35 publication.

Why: In 2014 alone over 391 security alerts affecting SAP were issued, with 46 percent of them ranked "high priority." These alerts included critical SAP platform vulnerabilities such as Heartbleed, Shellshock, Poodle and malware such as Zombie Zero. The Onapsis Research Labs has been instrumental in helping SAP AG identify and fix several critical vulnerabilities. SAP enterprise applications house an organization's most valuable and sensitive financial, HR and customer data and intellectual property, yet they are not protected from cyber threats and insider threats with traditional security approaches and controls.
