How Secure is Your Epicor System?


Yesterday, our team hosted a roundtable discussion around the topic: How Secure is Your Epicor System? We chose that topic to kick off our 2021 webinar season because security, hands down, is the most important factor facing businesses right now. And, your ERP system is the most important piece of technology your business possesses. Therefore, ensuring the security of your ERP system needs to be a priority for your business. As an Epicor Gold Partner, we have been witnessed to the carnage an attack on your ERP system can leave behind.

Your business can face a number of risks including:

  • Malicious threats/malware
  • Hackers/Cyberattacks
  • Disasters such as fires, tornadoes, hurricanes
  • Unauthorized access or changes by unqualified personnel
  • Disgruntled employees
  • Ignorant/Uneducated employees

These Potential Security Risks Could Cause:

  • Data Theft/Unauthorized Use
  • Denial of Service / Ransom – you have lost the use of your systems
  • Business Continuity
  • Loss of Revenue
  • Customer Attrition
  • Liability for Damages
