New research from BitSight suggests that a GPS tracker used in both consumer vehicles and commercial shipping could grant remote attackers the ability to control individual vehicles or even an entire fleet. This vulnerability presents a major threat to supply chains around the world: the device’s manufacturer has confirmed an install base of over 1.5 million, meaning the only way to ensure it doesn’t pose a threat to your organization is to evaluate your vendors.

ProcessUnity’s Dave Fordham sat down with BitSight’s Jacob Olcott to discuss the implications of their recent research and the best strategies for mitigating the risk they uncovered. When innocuous purchases like a GPS tracker can stop up a global supply chain, it is more important than ever that organizations have a continuous view into their vendor community. This discussion will cover the following:

  • The magnitude of the risk revealed by BitSight’s research
  • The importance of identifying vulnerabilities during procurement
  • How to identify vendors using vulnerable GPS technology
  • How to leverage continuous monitoring to mitigate risk
  • How to use ProcessUnity with BitSight to evaluate vendors
