Supply & Demand Chain Executive, “DIGITIZATION: A Risky Business,”
In early May, a phishing email reached approximately a million Google users. The email claimed to have come from Google Docs-a service that allows people to share and edit documents online. And, to users, it appeared to come from legitimate contact. The email asked users to click on a link and follow the instructions, giving hackers access to the user’s email account. This scam impacted personal and corporate email accounts across the globe, and had many IT managers scrambling to block access. The scam highlights a critical risk faced in today’s corporations and in supply chains.
