Supply Chain Pros Say Data LossIs Greatest Risk

Data loss is the greatest concern for supply chain professionals, according to a poll of nearly 500 IT and risk-management professionals conducted by Forrester Research on behalf of BitSight. The results, released earlier this month, indicate that when global supply chain pros work with third-party vendors, 63 percent fear the loss and theft of confidential data more than any other risk.

In a press release, BitSight co-founder and chief technology officer Stephen Boyer said the supply chain has become a cyber-security minefield for the business world.
