Managing ICT Supply Chain Risk in the Digitised World
Digitalization is now pervasive in the fabric of business, government and society, and with this comes increased cyber risk.

This session will examine key ICT supply chain threats, how developers and suppliers are strengthening defences, and steps small and large enterprises can take to better safeguard their networks.
