Supply Chain Risks Analysis

supply chain

Supply chain attacks are on the rise. The success of a business is undoubtedly linked to its supply chain. Yet, because of this, an organization is only as strong as its weakest link. According to the GAO-18-667T, reliance on a global supply chain introduces multiple risks to federal information systems. Supply chain threats are present during the various phases of an information system’s development life cycle and could create an unacceptable risk to federal agencies. These threats can have a range of impacts, including allowing adversaries to take control of systems or decreasing the availability of materials needed to develop systems. These threats can be introduced by exploiting vulnerabilities that could exist at multiple points in the supply chain.

Examples of such vulnerabilities include the acquisition of products or parts from unauthorized distributors; inadequate testing of software updates and patches; and incomplete information on IT suppliers. Malicious actors could exploit these vulnerabilities, leading to the loss of the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of federal systems and the information they contain. Today, organizations have a greater choice of suppliers and have become more reliant on third parties. This, however, also means that the supply chain has become a more complex web of interdependent companies who might not even be aware that they are connected. As a result, it is impossible to cover the entire supply chain. Additionally, technology is becoming an essential tool in the supply chain for all operations. These factors – on their own, but even more so when combined – have precipitated an inadvertent expansion of vulnerabilities within supply chains, especially in regard to cyberattacks.

Supply Chain Cyber Attacks

Sepio Systems Hardware Access Control HAC-1, provides 100% hardware device visibility.

HAC-1 enables Hardware Access Control by setting rules based on the devices characteristics.

HAC-1 instantly detects any devices which breach the set rules and automatically block them to prevent malicious attacks.

The idea is to Verify and then Trust that those assets are what they say they are.

Sepio Systems HAC-1 brings the ultimate solution to zero trust adoption by providing 100% hardware device visibility for MSSPs

With greater visibility, the zero-trust architecture can grant access decisions with complete information.

Thus, enhancing the enterprise’s protection within, and outside of, its traditional perimeters.

The Hardware Access Control capabilities of HAC-1, block Rogue Devices as soon as they are detected

HAC-1 stop an attack at the first instance, not even allowing such devices to make network access requests.

HAC-1 is here to protect Government Agencies and the nation’s critical infrastructure

Lastly, embracing Zero Trust Hardware Access to prevent Supply Chain Cyber Attacks is key.
