Digital supply chain risk: a new security threat of 2022

Gartner has identified digital supply chain risk as a new security  threat of 2022 and one of its top seven security and risk management trends for 2022. According to a new Gartner report, security leaders must develop more resilience and evolve strategies to safeguard an expanding digital footprint against emerging threats.

Attacks on the digital supply chain have proven to be a lucrative target for cybercriminals. New vulnerabilities are predicted to arise as more weaknesses proliferate through the supply chain.

Gartner has predicted that by 2025, 45% of organizations worldwide will have experienced attacks on their software supply chains, a threefold increase from 2021. New techniques to mitigating digital supply chain risks are needed, along with more deliberate risk-based vendor/partner segmentation and rating, requests for verification of security controls, and safe best practices. One crucial best practice, similar to protecting a physical supply chain, is transitioning to resilience-based thinking by identifying vital infrastructure and having a Plan B in place so a company can continue to operate, according to Firstbrook.
