The security of supply chains is becoming an urgent issue for enterprises. In our complex, interlinked world, security is no longer about trying to put a moat around your own organization. You must consider the whole network of relationships that comprise modern supply chains.
In fact, you’re only as secure as the weakest link in your supply chain.
What’s changed? To meet evolving customer and market expectations, Chief Supply Chain Officers have been creating intelligent supply chains, reconfiguring them for greater resilience, transparency, and speed. In the process, traditional linear supply chains are being transformed into more flexible, more digital, more closely connected supply chain networks.
The result? Modern enterprises have many more points of connection with the outside world than previously. And there’s more data flowing through those connections than ever before. That provides essential business agility and speed. But it massively increases the risk profile, both in the size of the potential cybersecurity attack surface, and in the flow of products and components through supply chains.
