Data Storage Security

Data Protection

Accounts Receivable processes payment transactions with your customers. Credit card data is stored for this purpose. This information can be stored in the following objects (technical table names in parentheses):

      Customer master record (VCKUN, VCNUM, CCARD, CCARDEC)

      Document supplement for documents posted as a result of a credit card payment (BSEGC)

      Payment data for a self-service payment (Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment) (BSEGC) 

You have to restrict the display of the relevant objects by assigning authorizations and, at the same time, ensure that the authorization protection cannot be circumvented by database programs or customer-specific ABAP evaluations. You can also make further security settings for payment card data. For more information, see SAP Note 633462 and the guideline for Payment Card Security.
