JD Edwards EnterpriseOne: Segmentation of Duties, Risk Management and GRC

We all know the problem with JDE security, it is complex, and trying to implement a GRC strategy can be challenging. But JDE is also very flexible and extremely good at stopping fraud while ensuring the users are safe and happy. The key issue is balancing efficiency with the need to control SoD and proper risk management.

The problems most people suffer from are how to rapidly achieve “best practice”, how to make maintenance an easy task, and how to satisfy the auditor waiting around the corner.

There’s No Integrity for THAT – Daily JD Edwards Data Checks for Distribution – Webinar

In my JD Edwards beginning, I was the Sales and Inventory Accounting Manager at a JDE customer and ensuring data integrity and processing for Distribution was a big part of my job.

I found I had to create my own “hit list” of things to check to ensure orders, invoices, and shipments all processed successfully, and to identify anything that needed additional attention.

In this Best Practices session, I’ll run through my favorite queries and checks that I used to ensure orders kept moving – and to avoid accounting headaches down the road!

Why Compliance Doesn’t Equal Security

You can be compliant but not secure. Checking all the required boxes on an auditor’s compliance matrix doesn’t ensure you company is secure. There must be a balance between compliance and security. Compliance-focused requirements are static, while today’s security models are usually dynamic. The speed at which technology and cybercrime changes make it very difficult for current regulations to drive best practices in security.

This is where Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems such as traditional SIEM through Splunk or a cloud-based SIEM through Microsoft Azure Sentinel can help you protect your most sensitive data. For example, a SIEM can help you protect your enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems such as SAP, Oracle B-Business Suite, and JD Edwards and establish “proof” you are doing so for compliance requirements.
