Supply Chain Security -Does we want to talk about this ??? Supply chain Security and Data Breaches in supply chain system. This has just Increased to 78% from last 2017..
What I personally feel that this (Supply Chain) could be easy targeted link to reach and Fetch any organisation Data…
When i am talking about Supply chain attack . Supply chain face a broad range of threats . i don’t ignore physical threats. But in Last Few year How many physical threats we heard about it might be two or three or might be less. Because Attackers have found new Way. Availability of tech with combination of global coverage of internet have given them a new way to enter into any organisation without permission.
As Supply Chain is Global Now – We are using multiple Software hardware to collect Store and Pass the Information regarding Your Supply , Demand, Inventory, & Shipments. Organisation dependency on technology has evolved new route for those who want to disrupt the Chain system of Supply chain Either for Information and Money.
We can take an example from 2017 In Maersk – the biggest Vessel operating and Shipping Company till Recent The Solar Winds Attack.
ORIGIN OF SUPPLY CHAIN CYBER ATTACK – WHAT COULD BE POSSIBLE ORGIN???
Trusting Data To A Third Party Vendor
Cloud service providers allocate significant funds to securing their systems, their reputations and livelihoods depend on it. Understandably, some companies are still reluctant to entrust important data to a third party vendor. There are certainly increased risks in using a cloud service that doesn’t put a premium on security. It is thus critical to engage only companies that have experience in dealing with mission critical applications and pass strict security audits. These companies often have much higher standards and more layers of security than those of the companies whose data they host.
IoT Sensor Compromise
IoT devices, which contain sensors equipped with Internet connections, are increasingly used in supply chains for inventory management and to predict machinery failures before they actually happen.
However, all of this sensor data is another attack vector that hackers can use to ascertain information about supply chains, including order volumes, important supplier relationships, and more. IoT devices need to be checked and verified for security and encryption should be implemented at all points in the IoT ecosystem
Mismanagement of Cloud Access
As supply chain management software and data storage move to the cloud, there is a pressing need to upgrade bear in mind the need to safeguard cloud data and applications. Failure to properly manage cloud access can lead to serious IT risks, including providing users with excess privileges, or, worse still, leaving cloud storage repositories open and accessible to anyone.
How to Check your Supply chain Security
1- Scalability & Security
2- Use of Integrated Emerging Technologies ( Artificial Intelligence, Block chain)
3- Find an Easy to maintain software which auto updates and Notify in case of any breach
4- Use of Powerful cloud based applications
5- Look always for an Understanding Partner who can understand what security stage your Organisation is and what you are looking For…
