Best Practice 2


In our increasingly digitized world, it is, perhaps, unsurprising that cyberattacks have become one of the leading supply chain vulnerabilities.

In 2018, suppliers for Airbus one of the world’s largest airliner manufacturers were subject to a series of cyberattacks, in which hackers gained access to classified documents containing schematics for military transport planes and passenger jets, as well as one vendor’s VPN.


Attacks of this nature are becoming increasingly common, exposing significant vulnerabilities within supply chain cybersecurity.

In order to ensure supply chain resilience, as well as the safety of both their and their customer’s sensitive data, it’s imperative that manufacturers proactively invest in cybersecurity.
