Your Private Guide to Ultimate Supply Chain Security Management


Supply Chain Security Management is not the top of the mind for boards and CEOs till something big happens. After that, this is the only thing they can think about until the crisis is over.

A better approach to Supply Chain Security Management entails being better prepared well before the disaster strikes. A high probability is that the disaster would skirt your supply chain if you have adequate safeguards in place. And, even if it does visit you, it will leave a less toxic residue.



A breach of your Supply Chain Security is a serious matter for the board, the senior management team, and for the entire company. A breach can be more than just some stock losses, with Data showing that the consequences of a Supply Chain Security breach are getting more severe, while the number of breaches is also growing. Clearly, prevention is better than needing to manage the clean-up and reputational damage. 
That is why companies are now taking all possible steps to prevent breaches of supply chain security.

Security was paramount when Vivek and I worked together on a supply chain transformation of the world’s largest explosive company. A minor lapse in security could easily lead to significant damage to personnel and material. Most supply chain managers continue to underestimate the importance of security, how to achieve it and ensure that it is kept in place and front of mind. Organisations need to be serious about ensuring supply chain security and minimise the risks to employees and the organisation.”
