UK Government seeks input on supply chain security

-

The UK government has unveiled new proposals to help UK businesses manage cyber security in their digital and third-party IT services supply chains, as a growing body of evidence suggests that the risks to business continuity are hitting unprecedented heights.

With supply chains demonstrably threatened through high-profile cyber attacks – a recent spate of incidents sparked through breaches of Accellion and Codecov products and, arguably, the SolarWinds incident – the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is calling for views on several measures to enhance supply chain security.

Recent research conducted by the department suggests that only 12% of UK organisations routinely review the cyber risks from their immediate suppliers, and only 5% address the vulnerabilities in their wider supply chain.
