Reducing supply chain exposure to cyberattacks

Cybercrime is a global threat and supply chain cyberattacks are increasing as offenders utilise new technologies to target, infiltrate and disrupt networks for criminal purposes.

While cybersecurity remains a core function of companies’ in-house IT operations, TAPA has recognised the threat cybercrime poses to the supply chain industry and, in the latest versions of the Association’s Facility Security Requirements (FSR) and Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) Security Standards, has included a section on Cybersecurity. We believe use of the TAPA Standards, when aligned to current national and industry standards on cybersecurity, will provide protective measures to help reduce exposure to cybercrime incidents. TAPA EMEA remains alert to new ideas and will adapt its Standards as appropriate to help our members and the industry-at-large to continue to combat the threat of cybercrime.

TAPA Americas and TAPA APAC Cyber Security Standard

Additionally, TAPA Americas and TAPA Asia Pacific have developed a TAPA Cyber Security Standard that will be deployed in 2022.

This follows other Security Standards initiatives developed by the individual TAPA regions, notably the development of Parking Security Requirements (PSR) by TAPA EMEA and the Guarding Security Requirements, launched in the Asia Pacific region.

TAPA EMEA – which was engaged in the initial discussions on a potential Cyber Security Standard – acknowledges the efforts of TAPA Americas and TAPA APAC to drive this Standard forward in their regions. As with all TAPA Security Standards, it will continue to evolve over time, based on consultation with members, to ensure it provides the practical measures to, ultimately, encourage its adoption globally.

The Cyber Security Standard being launched by TAPA Americas and TAPA APAC contains many best practices from other established standards.

TAPA EMEA will continue to closely monitor the response to the Cyber Security Standard from members in the Americas and APAC regions. However, at this time, TAPA EMEA cannot support activities regarding the certification, training or introduction of the TAPA Cyber Security Standards in the EMEA region.
