Journal of Supplychain Management, Logistics, and Procurement
The intersection of digital and physical security is critical to the future security of supply chain, logistics and procurement. Considering the challenge this poses to organizations today will only expand over the next decade as the attack plain will widen fueled by technological advances. Ultimately, the weaponization of an organization’s supply chain (SC), logistics and procurement systems poses a significant threat to national and global economic security. This paper will provide the reader with a better understanding of the future threats and vulnerabilities emerging within the domain as highlighted through the practice of threatcasting. The threatcasting methodology can be used by organizations, companies, governments, militaries and academia to identify, model and explore these possible threats to the supply chain and logistics and procurement systems. Finally, the paper provides a series of recommendations to counter future threats at both the individual and organizational levels.
