PROCESS FOR SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Supply Chain is the network covering materials or services from Vendor, moving/ Transportation , Operations, shipping to customer.
- You receive an order from your customer
Purchase Placed - You put in the order for needed materials or services to your vendor(s)
Inbound storage/ Transportation - components arrive at your facility
Warehouse - The materials/ components are used to make the finished product
Outbound shipping/ Selling- component ships from your facility to the customer
Customer- items arrives to customer > Customer uses product
Money is sent to the vendor for materials or services rendered
Three basic things to understand about cyber security
WHAT IS RANSOMWARE?
Ransomware is a type of malicious software that threatens to publish the victim's data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. While some simple ransomware may lock the system in a way which is not difficult for a knowledge person to reverse, the more advanced malware uses a technique called cryptoviral extortion, in which it encrypts the victim's files, making them inaccessible, and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them. In a properly implemented cryptoviral extortion attack, recovering the files without the decryption key is an intractable problem - and difficult to trace digital currencies such Ukash and Bitcoin are used for the ransoms, making locating and prosecuting the perpetrators difficult.
Ransomware attacks are typically carried out using a Trojan that is disguised as a legitimate file that the user is tricked into downloading or opening when it arrives as an email attachment. However, one high-profile example, the "WannaCry worm," traveled automatically between computers without user interaction.
What We Want To Understand In Order To Help
Who Are The Targets?
- Every small business, mid-sized company, enterprise, and organization is fair game, especially in light of the recent WannaCry and Petya attacks (though the latter was an atypical ransomware example).
- The longer answer is more complicated. Your vulnerability to a ransomware attack can depend upon how attractive your data is to criminal hackers, how critical it is that you respond quickly to a ransom demand, how vulnerable your security is, and how vigorously you keep employees trained about phishing emails, among other factors.
