Industry Risk Overview

Retailers who are moving away from the traditional store-front model in favour of e-commerce models are increasingly dependent on the warehousing and transportation industry with space to build new storage facilities close to populated urban areas at a premium. Increasing reliance on e-commerce, digitised supply chain management  and high levels of automation within the sector raise the risk of cyber and malware attacks leading to operational disruption.
