George Robertson, Principal Security Consultant, CGI

When most people think of supply chain security they think about who else can I get the service from if my main supplier fails to deliver. But in many ways just as important is the consideration of how Cyber Secure is your supply chain, and do they have the potential to provide a means into your organisation for hackers, or even simple service impacting mistakes.

You do not want your organisation to be unable to use their IT, or to lose data, due to a hole introduced by a supplier in error.

In this talk George Robertson considers at a high level some of the means that can be used to help protect your organisation. This is a talk about suitable approaches to security, and not specific tools. The aim is to help you decide what is the appropriate supply chain security for your organisation. George will consider security from the initial decision making process through to the final go-live of a new service and its ongoing support.
