How good is the company you keep? The importance of supply chain security to your cyber posture.


Do you know if your supply chain is secure? Is there a chance that your data could be compromised because of a weakness in your supply chain?

While many businesses have taken tremendous strides in recent years to measure and manage the cyber risk present within their own IT systems, they struggle to extend that vigilance to third-party risk.

One significant risk that can have severe consequences is a supply chain cyber-attack. Such attacks can lead to reputation and financial damage, as well as compromise the positioning of products in the market.

Unfortunately, too many businesses today are completely blindsided by downstream impact from ripple events at their third parties. They never see the threat coming because they simply do not have the mechanisms in place to monitor how well their vendors and partners are managing risk in shared or connected systems.

Every time a business adds another third party to their supply chain, they entrust more of their data to third parties. They’re sharing customer data with SaaS providers that help them with analytics, storing intellectual property on public cloud platforms, and openly connecting their internal systems with the networks of technical partners. And the list goes on.

Each of these relationships has the potential to add considerable risk to the business because every third party that touches their data has the potential to compromise them.

As such, the more enterprises build out their digital ecosystems, the more important it is for them to see and manage cyber risks incurred by their third-party relationships.

Investing in third-party risk management cyber technology has become imperative.
