The modern digital business increasingly relies on technology partnerships, leveraging third-party applications, API, and data to deliver new functionality and optimized user experience to the market.
However, this also exposes more risks from entities in the supply chain, such as suppliers, vendors, partners, contractors, open-source developers, etc.
It is crucial to analyze the intricate nature of modern software supply chains along with the business implications of a potential supply chain breach, resulting in data exposure, operational disruptions and reputational loss.
