Supply Chain Compromises - Understanding the Threat and Defending Your Organisation

Abstract

Adversaries continue to exploit supply chain weaknesses to gain initial access to wide swaths of downstream targets. These attacks exploit a tacit trusted relationship between the vendor and client to deploy malicious software or access customer data, and can transform a single compromise into a widespread event impacting thousands of victims.

Of late, it has been particularly prolific for supply chain compromises, with the SolarWinds and Kaseya incidents remain top of mind for many across the security community. While the execution of supply chain compromises requires a skilled adversary, the return on investment afforded by these attacks will continue to motivate supply chain compromises in the way ahead.

This session will cover the history of supply chain compromises and offer the audience with insights to increase their supply chain security and avoid becoming a victim of such pernicious attacks.
