Part 2 : The procurement nightmare

In the wake of thepandemic over the past two years, supply chains have suffered - and are still suffering - terribly. Once again, China, the "factory of the world", gets nervous and plays a "zero Covid" strategy. Factories are closing, the country and its main cities go into lockdown... Monumental delays in the manufacture of semi-conductors, a phenomenal increase in the cost of transporting a container during a brutal recovery... all these events are disrupting companies in France and accross the world.

To open this first edition of Top Logisitics Europe, Frank Journo (Néo 26) and guests offer an overview of the art of procurement: process and evolutions, short- and mid-terms consequences for the economy, solutions and countermeasures.

17h20 - 17h55 | Round-table : Suply Chain : let's talk about cybersecurity ?

Supply Chain : let's talk about cybersecurtity?

The Supply Chain is hardly ever associated with cybersecurity. In an incrementally digital environment, it is surely a mistake as a cyber attacks can make terrible damages from stopping an entire factory or interrupting products deliveries. Every organisations, from big companies to SMEs, are concerned as studies show these events are likely to increase. So instead of waiting and suffer, companies have to become aware of the threat very quickly and implement a protective and resilient approach. 

What are the risks ? How Supply Chain managers can get ready for it ? What actions can be put in place ?

These questions will be adressed during this round table with Philippe Ball and Benoit Bouffard, Managers at Wavestone, which have just published a white paper on the subject in collaboration with France Supply Chain. This round-table will be hosted by Florence Puybareau, Content Director at DG Consultants.
