Mitigate Enterprise Software Supply Chain Security Risks

The lack of transparency and trust within the global software supply chain has emerged as a critical issue for organizations everywhere. Whether motivated by the need to prevent attacks or to comply with regulatory mandates (or both), security and risk management leaders must act urgently to build resiliency into their software supply chain and respond to growing threats.

But this is easier said than done, as evidenced by the nearly two-thirds of U.S. businesses that were directly impacted by a software supply chain attack between April 2022 and April 2023. Such attacks are only increasing in volume and scale, but despite the security threats, relatively few organizations are taking proactive efforts to identify, assess, and mitigate software supply chain risks.

The Gartner® report, “Mitigate Enterprise Software Supply Chain Security Risks,” provides three practices for security and risk management leaders to implement in detecting and preventing attacks and protecting their organizations.
