Is A Data Breach Lurking In Your Software Supply Chain?

Chief Product Officer at GrammaTech, where he leads product strategy for the company’s application security testing product portfolio.

Just as the manufacturing sector has adopted the use of third-party providers to build their products, software development has created an extensive supply chain to address cost and time to market pressures for faster delivery of new applications and services. Virtually every modern custom-developed software application contains third-party components. These can be open source (OSS), custom ordered or commercial off the shelf (COTS) components. Lack of visibility into these building blocks poses a significant, and often underestimated, security risk. 

Consider the supply chain analogy in aerospace manufacturing. Today, virtually every part of an airplane is provided by third-party suppliers to the manufacturer for final assembly. Unlike software, each airplane has a detailed bill of materials that contains an audit trail for each component, including the supplier, where it was produced,

Shoppers have been waiting in virtual queues for over an hour as they rush to snap up deals on the Debenhams website after the chain’s collapse.

The department store chain is being wound down after JD Sports pulled out of talks on a rescue takeover, placing 12,000 jobs at risk in a horror week for UK retail.

Many hoping to get a deal have been left disappointed after customers complained on social media of having to wait for extended periods of time to get onto the website, with some then being “kicked out” of the queue.

This year Llamasoft released its latest tool, an AI-driven platform for managing supply chains intelligently. This capability in particular seemed to attract Coupa’s attention, as it was looking for a supply chain application to compliment its spend management capabilities.

Coupa CEO and chairman Rob Bernshteyn says when you combine that supply chain data with Coupa’s spending data, it can produce a powerful combination.

“Lamasoft’s deep supply chain expertise and sophisticated data science and modeling capabilities, combined with the roughly $2 trillion of cumulative transactional spend data we have in Coupa, will empower businesses with the intelligence needed to pivot on a dime,” Bernshteyn said in a statement.

Apple supplier Luxshare unnerves Foxconn as U.S.-China feud speeds supply chain shift

TAIPEI/SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Apple’s AAPL.O top iPhone assembler, Taiwan-based Foxconn, has set up a task force to fend off the growing clout of Chinese electronics manufacturer Luxshare, which it believes poses a serious threat to its dominance, three sources with knowledge of the matter said.

The project was initiated by Foxconn’s founder Terry Gou, according to one of the sources, to target Dongguan-based Luxshare 002475.SZ, which is little-known internationally but is poised to become the first mainland China-headquartered firm to assemble iPhones – a turf until now dominated by Taiwanese manufacturers.

The task force, which the sources say was created last year, has been looking into Luxshare’s technology, expansion plan, hiring strategy and whether the company – which currently makes

Hannaford — which has store locations in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York — provided an update Wednesday in a statement, one day after New Hampshire resident Nicholas R. Mitchell, 38, made his first court appearance on charges alleging he put razor blades in Portland Pie pizza dough packages that ended up on a Hannaford shelf in Saco, Maine.

“We are working closely with investigative authorities around the incidents involving malicious tampering of Portland Pie branded items,” the statement said. “We took comprehensive action to mitigate any potential harm to the public, broadening our recall well beyond the stores in scope of the tampering. We expanded
