University of Tennessee, Knoxville and Leidos partner for cybersecurity white paper
In the 21st century, cybersecurity threats are a growing, technologically advanced risk to global supply chains. Yet, too many supply chain managers continue to react to these threats in 20th-century ways.
“Managing Cyber Risks in Global Supply Chains: The Four Fundamentals,” the latest white paper from the Global Supply Chain Institute (GSCI) in the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is designed to help supply chain managers bring their supply chain cybersecurity into the 21st century. The paper focuses on the best practices to reducing cyber risk across the end-to-end, integrated supply chain.
In addition to articulating cybersecurity’s four fundamentals and showing how each builds upon the other, the paper offers numerous examples of both cyber weaknesses and sound cybersecurity strategies, with strategic ideas, an extensive list of cybersecurity best practices, a seven-step checklist to achieve cybersecurity, a case study and a guide to critical system risk management.
“As the leading provider of information technology solutions to the United States Government and with a supply base of over 10,000 providers, Leidos has a deep appreciation and commitment to ensuring the integrity of the supply chain associated with the defense and citizen critical missions we support, said Bob Gemmill, vice president of Leidos strategic sourcing. “The University of Tennessee Haslam School of Business is globally recognized as a top supply chain research school and that is why we were eager to collaborate and sponsor their research on supply chain cyber security.”
The third white paper in the GSCI’s “Supply Chain Technology” series, “Managing Cyber Risks in Global Supply Chains: The Four Fundamentals” is sponsored by Leidos.
