*NEW RESEARCH* Supply Chain Resilience: The Cyber Threat

TechMarketView’s new report Supply Chain Resilience: The Cyber Threat is now available to download.

Supply Chain Security

This report follows on from our recent analysis, Supply Chain Resilience: Opportunities for SITS providers, diving deeper into the cyber threats that organisations across supply chains face, how they differ across different industries and explores the mitigation measures, as well as process and cultural changes, that are required for organisations to build robust cyber resilience.

In addition to the range of business and economic issues organisations are facing, when it comes to maintaining a reliable and resilient supply chain, it is not only the physical sphere that is a cause for concern. As businesses have grown exponentially thanks to increased digitalisation and reliance on third-party digital products, they have left themselves exposed to a growing cyber threat.

The security of organisations, their data and that of customers and partners is a key factor that can impact business resilience. Failure to prepare for the threats posed by cyber threat actors, whether criminal organisations or state sponsored hackers can pose a risk not only to operational uptime but also to financial and brand health.

However, building that resilience means securing not just one organisation, but that of the whole chain. To do this will take more than implementing new security solutions, it will also require process and cultural change and a proactive stance towards securing against future threats.

If you are a UK SITS provider now is the time to be having a conversation with your customers about their supply chain cyber resilience, especially those with large partner ecosystems and exposure to OT and IoT assets.
