Part 2: Advanced Technical SAP Audit - Audit and control techniques for SAP R/3, SAP ECC and S/4 HANA Technical Auditors.

In this training course you will learn how SAP works, and review key concepts and terminology. You will see common navigation techniques, and learn how to create efficiencies in the assessment process through the use of variants, layouts, exclusion filters, and other similar techniques. You will learn how SAP security works, and understand how issues like cross-pollination can occur and fail to be caught by looking merely at transaction-level access. You will see the transactions most commonly used by basis, development, and security teams, and review how changes move from the development up to the production environments. From there, you will look at some of the most common SAP modules, and review the configurable control options, available reports, and security considerations. Towards the end of Part One, you will get a chance to dig into the SAP GRC suite and see how its various tools can help to mitigate common risks, as well as what you should assess to ensure these tools are working as intended. You will learn about the changes introduced by SAP HANA. You will also get a chance to explore how data analytics can be used to enhance and improve the audit and compliance process.
