Digital Supply Chain Security and Data Privacy: Detect, Remediate and Protect from Threats

Presented by SGInnovate and Society of Women Engineers Singapore

Today's digital supply chains are just one click away for employees, suppliers and customers spread across the globe. Data breaches, ransomware attacks and malicious activities from insiders and attackers can occur at any tier of an organization's supply chain. Any risk to the integrity of the products and services being delivered, the privacy of the data being exchanged, and the completeness of associated transactions can have detrimental fiscal and operational ramifications.

Securing today's supply chains thus needs a holistic approach that encompasses identifying critical business scenarios, modelling potential threats and mitigating them by appropriate tools, processes and best practices.

The successful security strategy is a comprehensive assessment based on a zero-trust approach, followed by a calibrated deployment of layered defences both in process and technology realms. Some examples are Data encryption, Static Code scans, Supplier Onboarding, and Access Management.

In this session, experts from IBM will walk you through the practical challenges and strategies to secure your hyperconnected digital supply chain based on a zero-trust approach.
