San Jose, Calif., May 5, 2021 – ZAG Technical Services, Inc., an award-winning IT consulting firm, managed services, and IT security provider, today launched a new supply chain risk assessment and management program aimed at providing agribusinesses with visibility into cybersecurity risks that can affect their business.
Supply chain disruptions are becoming increasingly common as food production and agribusinesses use more technology to streamline operations, increase return-on-investment (ROI), and improve processes. However, these same businesses are at risk of becoming targets of cyberattacks. A 2020 survey from Deloitte found that 83% of organizations experienced a third-party incident in the past three years, with 11% causing a severe impact on customer service, financial position, reputation, or regulatory compliance.
ZAG’s supply chain risk assessment provides tailored insights into potential vulnerabilities within an organization’s supply chain, along with a targeted remediation plan for how to manage and mitigate the risk. To execute this program, ZAG calls on its 22 years of experience in IT consulting, managed services, and support to clients across several markets, with extensive expertise in agribusiness and fresh produce sectors.
“Technology enables streamlined operations for businesses across the supply chain, but it can also introduce risk to an organization and its suppliers. Knowing where that risk is coming from is the first step in working to address it,” said Greg Gatzke, President, ZAG Technical Services. “We’ve introduced a way for organizations to assess their risk and be provided with actionable steps they can take to ensure their vendors and suppliers are meeting basic requirements that help reduce the likelihood of a cyberattack disrupting operations. Your vendors’ risk is your risk.”
ZAG works with organizations as a trusted partner to identify new technology applications or resources that can have a dramatic effect on their competitive capabilities and protect the supply chain.
