Webinar: Penetration Testing for Supply Chains and the Role of the MSP

Friday, 18 August 2023

2:00 – 2:45 pm (BST)

In the dynamic landscape of modern business, prioritising supply chain security is essential to shield your organisation from potential threats and vulnerabilities. Going beyond a tick-box evaluation of suppliers, it is crucial to thoroughly assess their cyber security practices and dedication to upholding security standards.

By incorporating penetration testing and collaborating with MSPs (managed service providers), you can elevate the resilience of your supply chain’s security measures beyond the ordinary. Penetration testing provides a systematic approach to identifying vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the supply chain, while MSPs contribute their expertise in continual monitoring and robust security protocols to enhance your overall supply chain protection.
