A new global survey of C-level executives released by CloudBees, reveals high confidence levels in software supply chain security but a limited understanding of the essential components that make a software supply chain secure. The survey also reveals that among nearly all companies, supply chain security is a higher priority than just two years ago.
According to the CloudBees Global C-Suite Security Survey, executives overwhelmingly claim their software supply chains are secure (95%) or very secure (55%), and 93% say they are prepared to deal with an issue such as ransomware or a cyberattack on their supply chain. However, when asked additional questions about the security of their supply chains, the responses uncover vulnerabilities. More than two in five (45%) executives admit that initiatives to secure their software supply chains are halfway complete or less, and 64% say they are not sure who they would turn to first if their supply chain was attacked.
