Third party vendors and digitally connected supply chains provide significant operational and cost efficiencies. But they also expose businesses to significant data security risk as sensitive data leaves your protected network. A recent report revealed more than 60% of all data breaches were from third-party vendors.

- Ask the right questions when assessing supplier risk
- Manage and securely distribute vendor risk assessments
- Automate vendor risk scoring to eliminate human error
- Create reports to meet compliance and stakeholder requirements (CISO, C-Suite, Board, Auditor)
- Schedule periodic re-assessment based on a vendor's risk profile and criticality to the business

Emergency responders often talk about the "Golden Hour", the period of time where there is the greatest likelihood that prompt attention will mitigate impact and damage. The same holds true for the Cyber Attack Chain. At what phase in the chain should you concentrate on to get the best protection for your organization or credible threat intelligence information?

In the world of marketing, these principles have been applied through the application of a marketing supply chain, effectively connecting customer and company demand for marketing materials (typically marketing consumables like printed content, promotional items, etc.) into a transparent, technology-powered network of suppliers and users to streamline processes and optimize budgets and utilization. Just as with manufacturing supply chain management, marketing supply chain optimization has led marketing leaders to realize great customer satisfaction and profitability, particularly through significant savings and the reduction in material obsolescence.
So now, savvy CMOs are turning to the customer and asking whether these same principles of supply chain dynamics can be applied to a process that actually reaches, engages and connects with customers. The answer is surely yes…but before we take that leap, the same rigor and advancement used to establish a marketing supply chain must be paid to content itself. Now is the time to realize the state of the content supply chain.
According to the Content Marketing Institute, 32 percent of a B2C organization’s budget and 28 percent of a B2B organization’s budget is spent on content. In a recent CMO Council study on the impact of the connected omni-channel experience, 60 percent of marketers admitted that the new connected customer has necessitated a shift in content strategies and a call for the rapid development of new content in new formats and sizes. Yet despite the clear budget priority content has taken—as well as the clear call to rapidly advance our content development and management skills to meet the demands of our customers—why is content still developed in campaign and functional team silos, often lacking effective paths for cross-functional collaboration and distribution? Are we giving content the respect and attention it deserves?
According to Accenture, every high performing supply chain is a digital supply chain.
They go on to say that, “Digital technology is disrupting traditional operations and now every business is a digital business. The impact on supply chain management is particularly great. Businesses cannot unlock the full potential of digital without reinventing their supply chain strategy.”
It's time to learn how to reinvent your organization's supply chain to unlock even more business potential.
Join this webcast to:
- Learn how the modern buyer is causing a transformation of the traditional supply chain
- See how digital technology can drive organizational change
- Understand how disruptive technologies—social media, mobile, cloud and analytics—cause the emergence of a digital supply network
- Appreciate the business advantages of a digital supply chain
- Recognize the difference between an enhanced supply chain verses a re-invented network

Identifying social compliance issues, particularly forced labor and human trafficking in supply chains, continues to be a significant problem for business, particularly when sourcing from opaque and non-transparent emerging markets. Civil society is playing a large part in increasing awareness and pressuring politicians to introduce and enforce legislation, and is gradually highlighting the issue as a problem which needs to be addressed both by governments and the business community.
Kroll has been researching and working on this issue for a number of years and believes that businesses should be taking the issue as seriously as other forms of compliance.

Cyber criminals are organised and well-funded and just like any innovative commercial business, these organisations have a business plan and an operating framework to ‘go to market’.
If we understood how they go about targeting individuals at organisations like yours with the end goal of stealing valuable sensitive data, perhaps we might change the way we protect our users. The good news is that there is a common operating framework that cybercriminals work towards known as the Cyber Kill Chain®.
It’s time to play the cyber criminals at their own game! Join, Proofpoint, Fujitsu and Bloor Research on this webinar as they provide practical advice on how to interpret the 7 stages of the Attack Chain and use this knowledge to review the way you prepare, protect, detect & respond to cyber criminals targeting your organisation.

Just as any organization can face risks and threats and have vulnerabilities; the same is true with members of supply chains. Individual suppliers can be at risk through a variety of events, such as fires, floods, technology failures and power outages.
This webinar discusses risks to supply chains and will provide guidance on identifying those risks and defining strategies for mitigating them.
“Following on from David’s article in this quarters Continuity Magazine entitled “The Parry and Riposte of Procurement and BCM” Page 31.
