Think You Know Your Supply Chain? Think Again
Share with Your Network
Most CISOs are thinking about their supply chains these days, and it’s not only because supply chain disruption has been a leading business story since the start of the global pandemic. Many companies saw their once reliable network of suppliers and distributors crumble as access to goods and services dried up and lockdowns prevented timely transport.
That was a logistical problem. But your supply chain, it turns out, may also represent one of your biggest cybersecurity weaknesses. If you don’t believe it, check the details surrounding the 2020 SolarWinds attack.
Any third party with whom you share data, transactional relationships, logins, and other privileges can make you susceptible to attack. Their vulnerabilities become your vulnerabilities. Their lack of cybersecurity diligence can result in your next breach. That’s why supply chain attacks are so attractive to bad actors: One well-placed exploit can have a damaging ripple effect across hundreds, even thousands of organizations.
Learn what it takes to secure your supply chain
In a new webinar now available for on-demand viewing, Jerry Gamblin, director of security research, Kenna Security at Cisco, explains that the first step in securing your supply chain is, quite simply, understanding your supply chain. (This isn’t trivial: Today’s supply chains are so complex that just 6% of companies say they have full visibility into theirs.)
In “Supply Chain Security 101: Understanding Your Supply Chain and Your Risks,” Gamblin not only covers supply chain security basics but also helps you break down the steps necessary to better understand your supply chain and then build the roadmap you need to secure it.
