Cyberattacks and the threat to Govt supply chains As organisations strengthen the security of their IT infrastructure, cyber criminals are turning their attention to the weak links in the supply chain. The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply makes the case for more awareness and collaboration. Supply chain links are often the most vulnerable point and supply chain partners have a key role to play in ensuring that they are adequately protected.
Cyberattacks are more common than people realise, Victims don’t openly discuss attacks for fear that it will open them up to further attacks. Phishing is pretty much commonplace these days and we are also seeing occasional business email compromise attempts, as well as the more traditional denial of service attacks.
