In Wake of Recent Breaches, Onapsis Sponsors SINET Innovation Summit to Raise Awareness for SAP Cybersecurity

Information security professionals urged to evaluate potential for SAP vulnerabilities in mission-critical systems.

BOSTON, Mass., June 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Onapsis, the global experts in business-critical application security and SAP cybersecurity solutions, today announced they are sponsors of the SINET Innovation Summit, June 25th 2015, the TimesCenter, New York. Onapsis joins the nation's foremost Cybersecurity experts and front line practitioners to discuss today's pressing Cybersecurity challenges. In May 2015, the USIS breach became the first widely publicized breach to be officially attributed to a vulnerability in an SAP system. While at SINET, Onapsis will focus on raising awareness of the rising security threat of SAP vulnerabilities among security professionals working on Wall Street, Silicon Valley and the Beltway.

"SINET Innovation Summit convenes the highest level of executive suite decision makers from our nation's three powerful epicenters--Wall Street, Silicon Valley and the Beltway. It is the only forum of its kind that connects the builders, buyers, investors and researchers who are working together to advance security innovation. We provide a platform like no other for the business of Cybersecurity to take place. SINET is not just an event, it is an experience," says Robert D. Rodriguez, Chairman and Founder of SINET.

SAP is run by over 250,000 organizations worldwide, including 87 percent of Global 2000 companies and 98 percent of the 100 most valued brands. Despite housing an organization's most valuable and sensitive information, SAP systems are not protected from cyber threats by traditional security approaches.

"While awareness is growing about the broad and escalating potential for risk occurring in SAP systems, many organizations still mistakenly assume their systems are secure," said Mariano Nunez, CEO and co-founder of Onapsis. "The SINET Innovation Summit is an opportunity to meet with strategic thinkers in security from both the public and private sectors and address the most imminent risks to business-critical systems."

SINET is a super-connector that accelerates Cybersecurity innovation into the global marketplace by providing trusted platforms for the business of Cyber to take place between investors, entrepreneurs and industry and government buyers. SINET events, membership program and strategic advisory services have delivered unsurpassed value within the ecosystem of the entrepreneur, from academia, science, private industry, investment banking, system integration, policy, innovators, and venture capital to the Federal Government and its civilian, military and intelligence agencies. Our forums take place in Silicon Valley, New York, London and Washington, DC.
