Securing the Supply Chain
Managing supply chain cyber risks is a critical enterprise agenda, imperative in today’s dynamic business landscape.
Recent vendors’ security incidents - including ransomware - have impacted business operations. And now, regulatory guidelines are mandating vendor disclosures on managing incidents. As such, Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) is a topic being discussed at board meetings worldwide.
Companies continue to rely heavily on suppliers, so organisations are increasingly onboarding vendors at a faster rate. The threat landscape is expanding beyond the traditional perimeter, exposing companies to a wide range of risks. Meanwhile, operations staff are overwhelmed, and organisations continue to face a shortage of security risk practitioners.
Companies grapple to evaluate their supply chain risk because most current assessments are point in time. Plus, most SCRM is still operating in a siloed manner with no clear accountability within the organisation. Companies must improve vendor responsiveness towards ongoing risk remediation and take action.
We leverage best-in-class technology capabilities and leading practices and bring advisory experience to transform your SCRM through our advisory-led modular and scalable solution.
Through our modular approach, we help our clients take clear actions to transform their SCRM programmes and manage cyber risks.
