H,

 

Thanks for the tip, appreciate it. Your article definitely helped me to understand the core concepts.
I'm most excited about the details your article touch based! I assume it doesn't come out of the box, it sounds like you are saying we'd need to write in the handlers ourselves.
Is there any other articles you would recommend to understand this better?

 

In the HANA migration guide, it is stated to run some consistency checks in FICO (see verbiage below).

I have run these, but I really don't know what I'm looking for - are we running just to make sure they run, running to validate numbers on the reports? Thoughts & guidance are appreciated. Thank you!

3.8 FI/CO: Performing Additional Consistency Checks

To ensure that the source system is consistent, user of Financial Accounting (FI) and Controlling (CO) need to perform some preparatory activities, among others additional consistency checks.

3.2 Product-Specific Preparations of the System Copy Guide, which is mentioned in Further Documentation [page 6].Caution Make sure that no customer data is changed in the meantime. Proceed as follows:

Procedure

1. FI: Run job SAPF190 to perform an additional consistency check. Choose AccountingFinancial AccountingGeneral ledgerPeriodic ProcessingClosingCheck/count. Then choose for○ classic FI: Reconciliation○ new general ledger: Reconciliation (New)

2. FI: You can further check consistency by running the jobs listed below:

○ RFUMSV00 (tax on sales/purchases)

○ RAGITT01 (asset history sheet)

○ RAZUGA01 (asset acquisitions)

○ RAABGA01 (fixed asset retirements)

3. CO: Run the report group 1SIP

 




Appreciate your effort for making such useful blogs and helping the community.  

 

Thanks a heaps,

Irene Hynes

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
