The annual CIPS/CILT supply chain risk event is back, after a two-year hiatus and attention turns to the human factor in supply chain risk management.
When it comes to supply chain security, people are often the weakest link. Businesses around the world lose £ billions to cyber and physical criminals every year, and a lot of that is down to the exploitation of human curiosity, credulity and complacency.
Criminals, that used to rely on phishing, hacking and weak security, now make use of stolen branding, legitimate-looking emails, fake websites and - increasingly - direct targeting of selected individual’s curiosity and credulity.
And while trucking has its own share of cyber-concerns, it’s the actions of its drivers (and inaction of governments) that contributes directly to supply chain risk and cargo theft.
Drivers face the road alone, often in harsh weather conditions, for weeks at a time, with the ever-present risk of hijacking and theft.
2022 ended with an average of nearly 20 cargo theft incidents per day in December in 28 countries across Europe, the Middle East & Africa, with product losses of more than £15 million in 31 days.
Despite the challenges our expert speakers will illuminate - using live examples - they will also outline the positive changes we can make and actions we can take to mitigate and maybe even eradicate cyber and driver supply chain risk in the future.
This event will be of interest to anyone who works in supply chain, logistics, freight and procurement; as a practitioner, carrier or customer. It will be of particular interest to managers with security and risk responsibility and will be valuable to students seeking topical industry issues and leading-edge thinking.
