Manufacturers the world over are finding they are more susceptible to incidents and crises, and must therefore take a new approach to business continuity and risk management. A greater reliance on IT has opened the door to new forms of incidents that weren’t a consideration in the past. Distributed manufacturing, assembly and delivery by third parties, means IP is spread throughout the supply chain. Geopolitical and cyber-related incidents can cause further uncertainties for global manufacturing and logistics. Yet despite this, or because of it, there is a world of opportunity for the risk-taker and the risk mitigator.
The potential for disruptions to the supply chain have never been greater. Effective business continuity planning will enable a company to withstand immediate problems, but a significant and persistent threat, such as the pandemic, calls for a more involved risk analysis.
