CYBER SECURITY AT THE SERVICE OF TRANSPORT AND LOGISTICS

Control the risks of integrating digital technologies into your operations

In the past few years, the transport industry has been undergoing a significant evolution of its supply chain with the introduction of automated systems/applications connected to the internet or other internal systems. It is often assumed that these systems are secure, as they are not always directly connected to the internet, but this assumption has been proven to be completely wrong.

 

Attackers will often gain access to these systems through another weak entry point in your system/network/cloud which allows them to affect other internal systems, directly impacting your productivity. This fast evolution of the technology used to manage and maintain the supply chain often leaves vulnerabilities open and unknown to the development team. Hence the importance of regularly testing the security of your systems, whether they are a new integration or an older system that was previously assumed to be secure.

TNT Express (FedEx Subsidiary)

is still recovering nearly two years after a damaging cyber attack which cost over $300m in direct losses. The intrusion of the "Ransomware" occurred via an infected update of a tax software used internally. The incident disrupted operations for several days and forced TNT to return to manual operations for nearly a month.

Delta Airline (American Airline)

Delta Airline was recently hit by a serious data breach which compromised the payment information over 9 million passengers. The incident occurred through a simple malware which infected a third-party chat service used by the Airline to communicate internally.

These incidents prove the importance of regularly assessing the security of all your systems. A minor security breach can result in hundreds of millions in fines or direct losses to the Business, as it provides an entry point for hackers to exploit all your other systems.
