The Business Application Security Initiative

The Business Application Security Initiative ( is a non-profit organization that focuses on security defects in business applications. These applications are the responsible for processing and managing the most critical business information and processes, which turns their protection into a key subject for private, governmental and defense organizations around the globe.

To these days, many security professionals believe that ERP security is a synonym of “Segregation of Duties”. While functional security is highly important, there are many other threats which imply higher levels of risk and are not usually properly assessed. The work of BIZEC is centered on risk rather than on technical details. This enables organizations to understand the impact of application security vulnerabilities and prioritize their mitigation accordingly.

The main goals of BIZEC are:

  • Raise awareness, demonstrating that ERP security must be analyzed holistically.
  • Analyze current and future threats affecting these systems.
  • Serve as a unique central point of knowledge and reference in this subject.
  • Provide experienced feedback to global Organizations, helping them to increase the security of their business-critical information.
  • Organize events with the community to share and exchange information.

BIZEC does not endorse or recommend commercial products or services with the objective of remaining as a vendor-independent community and provide the best available information free of commercial bounds and restrictions. Visit the BIZEC website for more information
