Many CISOs report that addressing supply chain security is one of their top challenges. Damage from supply chain security failure is already happening today. The Not Petya malware, which caused hard costs of more than $300 million to both FedEx and Merck, originally spread through compromised business tax software. Outsourcer/system integrator Wipro was targeted to be the launch point for attacks against its clients.

These types of supply chain attacks are on the rise, according to multiple reports, and the high financial impact of these attacks has increased CEO, board of directors, and regulatory and auditor attention to supply chain security.

In this webcast, John Pescatore, SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends, provides recommendations that provide guidance in answering the following:

  • What are the key processes, skills and technologies required for an effective supply chain security program?
  • What are the patterns of success at companies that are able to implement and operate effective and affordable supply chain security programs?
  • What business-relevant metrics can demonstrate the value of a supply chain security program?
  • What are some quick wins in getting started in improving the security of your companys supply chain?

Register today to be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by John Pescatore.
