Proactive Risk Mitigation Covers Cyber Threats Including GDPR Compliance
San Francisco, CA – March 6, 2018. Resilinc, a global provider of supply chain resiliency solutions, today announced the availability of Resilinc CyberSCRMä, an advanced cybersecurity risk monitoring and mitigation platform to protect enterprise supply chains, including indirect services suppliers, from cybersecurity threats.
“When we looked at exposure to cyber threats in global enterprise supply chains, we found that these threats can come from any part of a multi-tier supply chain, including outsourced service providers,” said Sumit Vakil, Chief Product Officer at Resilinc Corporation. “Our new CyberSCRM product will provide enterprises with an integrated, multi-tiered assessment, monitoring, alerting, and response platform, for both their physical supply chains and their third-party service providers. This new offering leverages our ability to assess across multiple tiers, monitor for cyber threats in 44 languages across more than 100,000 sources globally, and empower our clients to take a coordinated response as cyber threats emerge.”
Multiple security incidents from 2016 and 2017 highlight the growing need for the new CyberSCRM product. An analysis of major breaches shows that the points of entry are often trusted suppliers and service providers in addition to breaches of purely internal systems at organizations. Given that supply chains and service chains are multi-location and multi-tier, only a comprehensive and constantly updated information base provides the full coverage enterprises require. Resilinc’s new offering leverages global supply and service chain intelligence with advanced technology that constantly analyzes each customer’s exposure to risk, threats and events.
“Cyber threats in the supply chain may just be one of the largest single risk areas to most organizations today and in the years to come. Resilinc designed its new solution with that single idea in mind,” said Bindiya Vakil, CEO, Resilinc.
