Supply chain communications are trusted and typically convey a sense of urgency, making it easy for these types of attacks to blend in with legitimate and valid emails. Since the attacks come from trusted yet impersonated or compromised vendor accounts, organizations often cannot detect when an attack is underway until it’s too late.
These attacks highlight the importance of tools to ensure supply chain security like VendorBase Abnormal’s global, federated database of vendor and customer behaviors to stop supply chain compromise. VendorBase continuously monitors communications between vendors and partners, and provides a real-time, stateful risk assessment enabling Abnormal to stop these targeted supply chain attacks.
