The Business Continuity Institute has published its latest Working Paper, in which Gianluca Riglietti investigates cyber supply chain resilience and highlights why business continuity is so important in helping to achieve this.
In an increasingly interconnected world, supply chains enjoy growing opportunities, while also being exposed to new threats. The paper outlines what these threats in the cyber field look like and how they can disrupt business, as well as demonstrating how to improve supply chain cyber security (SCCS) from a business continuity perspective. It highlights best practice to heighten security in SCCS, and makes suggestions for practitioners in order to practically apply this knowledge to everyday business.
The Paper concludes by emphasising that the business continuity profession can provide a significant contribution to overcoming the challenges, applying existing practices to a relatively new field and cooperating with other protective disciplines.
