Smart quiet attacks
It is getting even more frightening to know that as we evolve, hackers evolve alongside our advances. Now that they are getting even smarter in their tactics, we need to counter their attacks with our own preventive measures. Our business might collapse before we even find out that we are under attack. Conniving attacks come without notice and this is when businesses suffer the most.

Re: Dastardly deeds

Good points about the trucks. The trucking delivery software that is used by the trucking companies is isolated from the receiving company's network, it is very limited and they have been upgrading this process since the beginning (it is a logistic bidding system). But the alternative side is that the receiving trucking or delivery company could be infected but again, the only bidding mechanism goes through a process where they check the contract and they call the trucker and validate the order before they move forward (very good system).

 I wish most of the supply chain systems were as robust and efficient as this trucking system. I had mentioned in another article written by "DR" that we need to implement a BlockChain Supply System using similar mechanisms the "Trucking Logistic System" uses (call, validate the various loads).

 Great points

Dastardly deeds
Do you have any idea how much mayhem you can cause if you screw up a company's operations or chain of command! Can you imagine trucks going to the wrong warehouses, deliveries being late and customers generally just not being able to get anything sorted out. It would be a catastrophe for the company and would most certainly direct customers to its competitors!

Privileged providers
Good article. Simply put, bottom line could be something kind of treat your providers with online access as privileged accounts, even when they're not.
