Global organizations are facing an increasing number of attacks that originate from third-parties or suppliers they do business with. According to the 2023 Proofpoint Human Factor report, 80% of organizations experience an attack from a compromised supplier every month.

By leveraging compromised supplier accounts to steal user credentials, send malware, and scam organizations with business email compromise (BEC) attacks, threat actors have turned the supply chain and partner ecosystem into the newest threat vector.

Join us for this live 60-minute webinar featuring Forrester Principal Analyst, Jess Burn to learn how to break the attack chain and stop supplier threats. We will discuss:

  • Supplier threat market trends, challenges, and risks
  • Why threat actors are targeting your supplier chain and partners

  • Best practices for strengthening your supply chain security
