Cyber attacks continued to grow in intensity in 2018, with alarming new trends evident. First, government agencies are now being attacked more frequently. The March 2018 attack on computers and networks in Atlanta—a major national transportation hub—was the largest successful ransomware cyber attack on a U.S. city. In the private sector, aerospace, hi-tech, life sciences, metals, mining and natural resources companies experienced cyber attacks in 2018. The medical device segment in particular was recognized as an industry in which cyber attacks on manufacturers could pose threats to patients. After cybersecurity vulnerabilities were identified in the Internet connections used by Medtronic to update software in cardiac implantable electrophysiology devices (CIEDs), the company issued a voluntary recall in collaboration with Food and Drug Administration. Following this event the Healthcare Sector Coordinating Council, a joint group on security issues between industry and government, published a joint security plan addressing the challenges faced by medical devices. Similarly, a computer virus attack at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) was caused due to a failure in following proper operating procedures for virus scanning.

Charlotte Hicks

In January, Resilinc reported on the potential El Niño and its impacts on the global supply chain. In the last few months, we’ve started to see weather reports, possibly El Niño related events, that can have significant impacts to industry supply chains such as electronics and life sciences. As you will see, impacts in one industry can impact industries not typically viewed as related or interdependent. Below is an analysis of potential supply chain impacts to electronics, automotive, and life sciences industries, as well as upstream mining and agriculture industries.
