Only 13% of businesses review cyber risks posed by their supply chain, are you one of them?

The latest government data shows just over one in ten businesses review the risks posed by their immediate suppliers (13%), and the proportion for the wider supply chain is just 7%.

A supply chain attack is a cyber attack that targets the less secure elements or vulnerabilities of a company’s supply chain. The aim is to exploit the vulnerability and to cause serious damage for those on the end of the attack or to gain unauthorised access to a company’s data or systems.
