Cybercrime is on the increase with cyber criminals devising ever more devious tactics to hack into IT systems to introduce ransomware and compromise business emails for immediate financial gain.

Logistics firms can be particularly vulnerable as a basic system failure can lead to major stock integrity issues, prevent order submissions and inventory management, delaying delivery schedules, as well as failure of automatic machinery.  In addition to the immediate hit these outages would have to the bottom line, there may be negative implications for a company’s reputation.
