Market Differentiation and Competitive Advantage through Supply Chain Security Standards


Monday, 8 December
Breakout 3

Companies traditionally find it challenging to justify security-related investments because they focus largely on the direct expenses and not on the collateral benefits (e.g., supply chain efficiency). This presentation will highlight the key vulnerabilities of supply chains and how improving security can bring additional benefits as follows:
• Leveraging Supply Chain Security Management as the defining factor in effective supply chain security
• Mapping supply chain vulnerability and risk appetite across enterprise
• Ensuring that supply chain risk management strategies offer competitive advantages
• Creating improved transparency between supply chain partners for improved service delivery
