Today, global business demands firms leverage global supply chains and service global customers. Pandemics, natural disasters, or terrorist attacks could undermine the continuity of this global supply system. Furthermore, with everyone interconnected, even small localized events could cause significant interruptions in the flow of goods, or even escalate into something more widespread. Are organizations and governments prepared with well-defined strategies to handle these threats? What are organizations doing individually or as a group, to proactively handle these potential security vulnerabilities effectively?
