ZAG Launches Supply Chain Risk Assessment Program
SAN JOSE, CA - With technology taking the wheel on industry growth, resources provided by partnering tech and service companies have become more integral than ever. ZAG Technical Services is one such company, and recently launched a new supply chain risk assessment and management program for its partners. The tool is aimed at providing agribusinesses with visibility into the cybersecurity risks that can affect their business.
“Technology enables streamlined operations for businesses across the supply chain, but it can also introduce risk to an organization and its suppliers. Knowing where that risk is coming from is the first step in working to address it,” said Greg Gatzke, President. “We’ve introduced a way for organizations to assess their risk and be provided with actionable steps they can take to ensure their vendors and suppliers are meeting basic requirements that help reduce the likelihood of a cyberattack disrupting operations. Your vendors’ risk is your risk.”
Supply chain disruptions are becoming increasingly common as food production and agribusinesses use more technology to streamline operations, increase ROI, and improve processes. However, these same businesses are at risk for becoming targets of cyberattacks, a press release stated. A 2020 survey from Deloitte found that 83 percent of organizations experienced a third-party incident in the past three years, with 11 percent causing a severe impact on customer service, financial position, reputation, or regulatory compliance.
ZAG’s supply chain risk assessment provides tailored insights into potential vulnerabilities within an organization’s supply chain, along with a targeted remediation plan for how to manage and mitigate the risk. The company calls on its 22 years of experience in IT consulting, managed services, and support to clients across several markets to provide extensive expertise in agribusiness and fresh produce sectors.
