BACKGROUND:

The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) has found that 66 percent of supply chain attacks focus on the supplier’s code. Supply chain attacks have been a concern for cybersecurity experts for many years because the chain reaction triggered by one attack on a single supplier can compromise a network of providers. Malware is the attack technique used in 62% of attacks, according to the new ENISA report Threat Landscape for Supply Chain Attacks, which analyzed 24 recent attacks. ENISA says strong security protection is no longer enough for organizations when attackers have already shifted their attention to suppliers. This is evidenced by the increasing impact of these attacks such as downtime of systems, monetary loss, and reputational damage.
