Supply chain attacks, such as the MOVEit data breach that has affected more than 150 organizations, are "the nature of the landscape now," said security leader Ian Hill of Upp Corp. The answer to this scourge may be using generative AI to qualify partners and to analyze and score supply chain risk, he said.

"I can see potentially the opportunity for AI to do some of the due diligence on the supply chain," Hill said. "I could see the use for AI to interrogate, use its capability to analyze, and then risk-score or, better, give a better risk analysis of the supply chain."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at Infosecurity Europe 2023, Hill discussed:

  • How supply chain management has shifted in the post-pandemic world;
  • How Upp Corp. has adapted to these changes;
  • The opportunities and challenges of AI in supply chain management.

Hill, who has over 25 years of information technology and cybersecurity experience, has written a book and journal articles, spoken at international conferences and developed two commercially successful software products in the field. Prior to joining Upp, he founded Drakken Ltd., a specialist web application ISP responsible for designing and implementing highly secure hosting environments and applications for Nokia Mobile Phones. He also developed the first commercially successful web-based vehicle tracking system for ACIS - now VIX.
