Topic 1 (3:00 PM- 4:00 PM): Strategic Approach to Managing Shared Supply Chain Risk

In this session attendees will learn how organizations are able to understand the potential risk a supplier may pose to the organization.

It is important that organizations identify, evaluate, and remediate risk without destroying the service, impacting the service, and/or adversely affecting the business relationship while ensuring the business continues to operate in a safe and secure manner. Additionally, we will be exploring and understanding the complexity of cyber risk in today’s ever changing and unpredictable economic supply chain.
