topic 5: Hacker-safe enterprise software (Blockchain, DSGVO)
Question: Will 2018 see an increase in the hacking of business software?
The general trend of increases in internet criminality will continue and ERP systems will be no exception to the rule. The real question for the future will be, however, the extent to which the effects of such attacks can be limited and controlled. Especially because of the increasing automation of decisions it will be ever more challenging to take countermeasures before the attacks lead to damage being done. Take, for example, so-called flash crashes: they remain in our memories for the sudden and dramatic falls in stock market prices that resulted. Technologies in the area of AI and process mining offer us a possible way out of the problem: if we automate decisions then we must also automate the controls and the execution of counter measures.
