How to mitigate the risk of supply chain cyberattack
In the last year alone, supply chain attacks have increased by over 400%. Gartner estimates that 45% of organizations worldwide will have experienced a cyberattack on their supply chain by 2025, an astounding statistic when you consider that this figure hovered in the low teens in 2021. We’re emerging into a time of unprecedented supply chain security risk.
