COURSE OVERVIEW
Security is extremely important for all businesses and organizations, and one important part of organizational security is supply chain security. Companies who do not take supply chain security seriously leave themselves vulnerable to potentially devastating attacks.

Supply chains face a broad range of internal and external threats, ranging from physical threats to cybersecurity threats. The physical threats are perhaps the most obvious ones and can occur at any point along the supply chain.  Examples include terrorists disrupting a supply chain by attacking oil infrastructure, theft, and even piracy. In today’s highly technical world, supply chains are at a greater risk than ever before from a wide range of increasingly sophisticated and hard to identify cyberattacks. 

This fast-paced course is intended to provide an opportunity to explore the various supply chain risk and security elements and explore ways to address threats and risks in an ever-changing and more complex supply chain environment.
