A Security Matrix for Cyber Risks in IOT Enabled Supply Chains

  • Gauri Salunkhe et al.


With supply chain (SC) industry adopting digitization at all its stages, their ultimate objective is
pointing towards features of Industry 4.0. Number of smart devices that communicate and
respond to each other with IOT, allows all SC members to peep into the network to gain live
updates seamlessly. This improves the transparency in business but opens doors for attackers.
This paper surveys the cyber threats the IOT supply chain gets exposed to and mitigation
techniques used to deal with such breaches. We propose system architecture encompassing IOTSC with NIST cyber security framework guidelines. We formulate cyber security matrix for
supply chains that lays IOT model on NIST cyber security framework.
