Industry Overview:

The supply chain and logistics industry is crucial for the functioning of modern economies, responsible for the movement of goods from manufacturers to retailers and ultimately to consumers. It encompasses everything from transportation and warehousing to distribution and inventory management. As of January 2022, the industry in North America was estimated to be worth hundreds of billions of dollars.

Importance of Cybersecurity:

This industry is becoming increasingly complex and digital, relying on a variety of software systems and IoT devices to track and manage goods. This digital complexity makes it a ripe target for cyber-attacks aimed at disrupting operations, stealing proprietary information, or committing fraud. Security breaches can cause significant operational delays, financial losses, and erosion of trust among clients and consumers. The high level of interconnectivity among multiple players also means that a cybersecurity incident can have a cascading impact across the entire supply chain.
