Technical and Legal Implications of the Growth in Supply Chain Cyberattacks, 2021 Cybersecurity & Privacy Protection Virtual Conference
Amanda Martin, a member of McDonald Hopkins National Data Privacy and Cybersecurity group, is a panelist at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law's 2021 Cybersecurity & Privacy Protection virtual conference. She will be speaking on Technical and Legal Implications of the Growth in Supply Chain Cyberattacks.
2020 was the best year on record…for supply chain cyberattacks. While incidents involving SolarWinds and Microsoft dominated the headlines for their impact and technical sophistication, attacks that originate from third-parties are coming off a banner year. According to DevOps research by Sonatype, supply chain attacks are up 430% year over year, with particular impact on vendors and software components that are used by large organizations around the world.
In this panel, we’ll dive into why supply chain attacks are exploding in popularity and discuss practical techniques for staying resilient in the face of this increasingly challenging attack vector.
