Are Cybersecurity Risks Lurking in Your Supply Chain?
What do banks, retailers and multinationals all share? Each has experienced a cyber disruption to their supply chain. Regardless of your company’s geographic location, the risk of cyberthieves targeting your financial data, trade secrets and competitive information is a threat not to be ignored. Such threats come in two flavors: the adversary with a low risk of detection and the aggressor scouring your system for a communication path to other supply chain partners. The question is how to start tipping the scales toward the good guys.
Timothy G. Hall, President, AZORCA Cyber Security, LLC
