You’ve heard about supply chain cyberattacks. But what are ripple events — and what’s the fallout from such cyberattacks?
Some answers and analysis surfaced in a new RiskRecon research report entitled IRIS Tsunami (Information Risk Insights Study). Before diving into the report, keep in mind the difference between supply chain cyberattacks and ripple events.
RiskRecon calls multi-party incidents “ripple events,” for how the aftereffects swell outward from the central victim to envelop others in their wake. Ripples may show up as hackers migrating from the first victim to other organizations. Or partners and customers may suffer operational or financial losses.
