Summary

Automotive Supplier Cybersecurity Symposium on October 20 will bring cyber experts together to discuss industry solutions

Cyber extortion has become a multi-billion dollar business. No industry is safe from attack, and it is increasingly clear that a successful attack against one supplier can have ramifications up and down an entire supply chain. Immediate ramifications include loss of customer data, exposure of financial information, or destruction of intellectual property and competitive advantage. However, an attack can even impact direct competitors due to parts shortages or decreased orders.

Criminals have also learned that targeting the supply chain can be especially effective because they can use partner connections to infiltrate many other companies. For example, the US federal government experienced a large data breach last winter when attackers leveraged the SolarWinds’ Orion suite of security and network monitoring tools to push a malicious update to over ten thousand SolarWinds customers.

Suppliers and OEMs alike benefit from open lines of communication and honesty about the capabilities and security of their systems. Building strong relationships is also crucial to the long-term success of our industry. To learn more about how you can secure your supply chain, join Stellantis, in partnership with Ford and General Motors, for the 2021 Automotive Supplier Cybersecurity Symposium on October 20. The event will include an exciting lineup of solution-oriented security presentations that are hosted by some of the automotive industry's top companies and cybersecurity leaders.
