Supply Chain Attack

by Hideo Nakamura
Supply Chain Attack

Supply Chain Attacks are a type of cyber attack that targets the software used in a company’s supply chain. A successful attack on the supply chain can result in serious disruption to business operations and data breaches, as well as financial losses.

A Supply Chain Attack is typically carried out by targeting vulnerable third-party vendors or suppliers within an organization’s supply chain. By gaining access to these vendors’ systems, attackers can exploit any vulnerabilities they find and gain access to corporate networks and confidential information such as customer records, credit card numbers, passwords and more.

Attackers may also use malicious code embedded into otherwise legitimate software updates or applications which could allow them to gain control over a system with even minimal user interaction. This type of attack is often difficult to detect because it appears just like legitimate traffic from trusted sources.

Protecting against Supply Chain Attacks requires organizations to stay vigilant about their security practices – making sure all third-party vendors have secure systems in place for handling sensitive data; implementing regular security audits; keeping track of any changes made to vendor systems; staying up-to-date on emerging threats; running vulnerability scans regularly; using strong authentication methods when granting remote access; and more. Organizations should also consider investing in technology such as blockchain which provides enhanced levels of transparency, immutability and trust around digital assets moving through the supply chain network by creating an immutable record of transactions that cannot be modified without detection or alteration attempts being recorded on an immutable ledger..
