Supply chain attacks pose a serious threat to all organizations and need to be considered as part of your overall risk strategy. Here are four basic steps that you should take to better improve your supply chain security:
1. Always be diligent about conducting background checks and detailed screenings as a part of your organization’s hiring practice.
2. Don’t ever think that a supply chain security breach couldn’t happen to your organization. Be proactive and understand your geopolitical environment. This will help you to understand organizations that may be motivated to cause harm or access resources to yours.
3. Your organization is only as secure as it’s weakest link. Know your vendors, suppliers, and partners. Then, take reasonable steps to verify their security practices and procedures.
Implement a robust, centralized governance process for IT procurements. Limit the number of people who are authorized to purchase–or enter into contracts–for products and services that may connect to your networks. Ideally, this process should be linked to your organization’s cybersecurity team, allowing products and services to be vetted for potential risk and negative impact.
