The Power of Resilience

Internet technologies are now indispensable communications tools within and between companies. Yet the openness of these networks and the high potential value of corporate and personal information make these systems a tempting target for criminals, terrorists, and state-sponsored espionage. Cyber-criminals can gain access to a company’s information through its supply chain partners’ information systems. Furthermore, the rise of the Internet-of-Things, with digital “smarts” being added to ever more consumer products and industrial systems, creates physical vulnerabilities rooted in digital vulnerabilities. This chapter describes these threats and offers potential solutions on how to secure the information supply chain.

Keywords:   Cyber-security, Internet-of-Things, Digital vulnerability, Cybercrime, Terrorism, Cyber-espionage
