The Good News Up Front

The Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (CCCS) has assessed SAP’s S/4HANA, Private Cloud Edition (PCE) managed by SAP NS2 against the Government of Canada’s PBMM security control profile for cloud services. PBMM, which stands for “Protected B Confidentiality, Medium Integrity, Medium Availability,” means organizations can now leverage the power of S/4HANA PCE for better decision making and more effective collaboration, even when the data at hand is classified as Protected B. The assessment represents a significant milestone in SAP NS2’s ability to serve government and regulated customers in Canada.


What is Protected B?

The Government of Canada (GC) Protected B security level for sensitive government information and assets applies to information or assets that, if compromised, could cause serious injury to an individual, organization, or government. The assessment is conducted by CCCS, Canada’s authoritative source of cyber security expert guidance for Canadian government, industry, and the general public.

Why Does it Matter?

This is good news for our customers in government and regulated industries because it will move them forward on their journey to adopt SAP technologies into their highly secure environments.
