Avnet Journal Reveals Keys to Hardening the IoT-Connected Supply Chain

Avnet released the latest edition of the Supply Chain Navigator, supply chain thought leadership journal, with an exclusive interview with HP Inc. Chief Supply Chain Officer Stuart Pann, and an in-depth look at how IoT connectivity in the Factory of the Future has put industrial supply chains in the crosshairs of the world’s most sophisticated and malicious cybercriminals.
“The distinct challenges around fortifying today’s connected industrial control and civil infrastructure systems are often either misunderstood or underestimated,” said Wade McDaniel, publisher of Supply Chain Navigator and vice president of solutions development and delivery, Avnet Velocity. “In this issue, we share insights from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cisco, and other highly respected voices in the cybersecurity field into the distinct cyber risk challenges facing members of the industrial supply chain, as well as tips for building more effective cyber hygiene into today’s IoT-enabled value networks.”
