1. Central Privacy Governance

The use of personal information is strictly controlled by various regulations and privacy risks exist when this type of data is collected and processed.

Personal data in SAP applications must be protected according to the data protection laws. This is achieved by blocking and deleting data according to residence and retention rules. Residence rules are set to define the time for which data can stay in the database, after which it is archived. Retention rules are defined to store the archive files for a set amount of time, after which they can be destroyed.

As a supplement to manual governance, the scope item 3KX in SAP S/4HANA Cloud provides setup instructions to SAP BTP and enables the automatic detection of privacy risks for personal information and relevant documents, such as sales order, providing insights on regulatory reporting and proactive auditing.

Use Case: Detection of Sales Order which elapsed retention period

Demo: Creation and Execution of Work Packages
