Continuous Supply Chain Assurance: Monitoring supplier security
Supply chains are often huge, complex and challenging to manage. Large organisations have multiple thousands of suppliers, each of which have their own suppliers. Supplier vulnerabilities are therefore an increasingly common cause of compromise. Any link in this chain could cause security incidents that:
- lead to supply chain failure or otherwise disrupt operations
- leak sensitive information
- compromise the integrity or availability of critical systems.
Continuous Supply Chain Assurance: Monitoring supplier security helps those tasked with managing information risk to present decision makers with up-to-date information and evidence on the security of suppliers. It provides informative guidance for both the organisation and suppliers.
