Great Articles on Supply Chain Security

This last week saw two great new articles on supply chain security in two different industries: the first from Wired Magazine on the casino gaming industry, and the second from Dark Reading on the data breaches in various defense company networks through security authentication devices.

These articles both tell the stories of companies and organizations that have lost business, customer confidence, and sensitive data because of supply chain security holes. Even in well-architected security solutions like the RSA authentication tokens and gaming machine security chips, companies that lose track of parts inventories and accesses in delivery, maintenance, and upgrade will eventually encounter security breaches that are difficult to detect and very costly to recover from.
