Session: Addressing Supply Chain Data Risk with Structured Data Security Architecture Framework
When considering assets that may need protection, the mind begins to contemplate homes, cars, and investment funds. In most cases, protection of those assets can be covered through security systems and insurance. Data is not the first thought that comes to mind that would need protection, even though data is at the core of most supply chain operations. It includes trade secrets, management of personal identifiable information (PII), and consumer data that can be used to enhance the overall experience. Data is considered a critical element of success for supply chains and should be one of the most critical areas to protect.
In the supply chain industry, there are two major misconceptions about protecting data:
We do not manage or store confidential/personally identifiable information (PII).
Reliance on Third-Party vendor security
These misconceptions can significantly derail organizational efforts to adequately protect data across environments.
