The Supply Chain Threat

In recent years, supply chain attacks have been numerous, successful, and highly impactful, the most recent example of which is the 3CX compromise.

The obvious success of past supply chain attacks encourages attackers to attempt to replicate those successes, and the web of complex trust relationships that makes up the current technology ecosystem empowers supply chain attacks, allowing a single compromise to affect thousands of organizations. Proof of this impact can be seen in the fact that multiple governments are now proposing legislation to address the chains of trust and vulnerability that have enabled single cyber security incidents to have such far-reaching impact.
