Is your software supply chain at risk of disruption?

As we move into a post-pandemic world, many businesses continue to pull forward their digital transformation strategies and outsource critical business processes to third parties.

Third-party vendors are part of every organization’s supply chain, and an attack against the vendor, their environment or hosted application will most certainly have a rippling effect to an organization’s customers base. Particularly as supply chains become more dynamic, growing in size and complexity.

What happens when your business-critical systems go down?

The increased sharing of data and network access across the supply chain makes managing the extended threats of third-party vendors can be a daunting task. Preparing for these threats before they ever happen may reduce the impact of the attack - but what happens when you aren’t prepared?
