Supply Chain Attack

Supply chain attacks are an emerging threat that targets software designers and suppliers. The objective is to access source codes, build processes, or update mechanisms by infecting fair apps to disseminate malware. The threats are alarming and continuously hitting the cyber market. Supply chain attacks are diverse and impact various industries. For example, the manufacturing industry has witnessed massive cyber security attacks by tampering with a company’s manufacturing processes, either by hardware or software.

Due to the weak links in the supply chain, criminals get access to organization data and systems to infiltrate overall digital infrastructure. Installing Malware at any stage of the supply chain can cause either disruptions or outages of an organization’s services. Therefore, manufacturers must be aware of many familiar sources of supply chain attacks, for example, commercial software, open-source supply chains, and foreign products.
