About the EventWatch Annual Report™

The EventWatch Annual Report aggregates, analyzes, and summarizes supply chain event information generated by the EventWatch® 24x7 global event monitoring, alert, and analysis service. EventWatch is the leading service of its kind and used by global corporations to improve their event responsiveness and crises preparedness. The EventWatch Annual Report is used by supply chain risk practitioners, analysts and executive stakeholders to understand global supply chain risk trends through a variety of lenses. It answers questions like: Which event types are most common or becoming more common? How does my industry compare to other industries in terms of the number of events experienced? Which regions are impacted the most? And, what months see the most incidents?

What makes the EventWatch Annual Report different from “Top 10 Supply Chain Event” lists and other year-end reports and commentary is that it is driven by data and focuses on impacts to specific brands, suppliers, sites, and parts, based on a calculation of value-at-risk. To accomplish this it leverages the Resilinc supplier repository which includes risk information associated with over 80,000 supplier sites – representing over 1.5 million parts.  Already on-boarded suppliers and sites represent up to 90% of a company’s upstream supply chain. This contrasts with other publications which provide a more qualitative assessment, based typically on estimates of damage to public or shared infrastructure; this tends to bias the focus toward downstream/logistics-related disruptions.
