The North East Business Resilience Centre (NEBRC) warns engineering and manufacturing firms about the rising threat of ransomware attacks targeting their supply chains.
Criminals exploit vulnerabilities within suppliers’ systems, putting businesses at risk of financial loss and reputational damage. To mitigate these risks, firms should conduct regular vulnerability assessments, collaborate closely with suppliers and tech teams, and implement robust security measures.

NEBRC’s ethical hackers recently assisted an engineering firm in assessing vulnerabilities and improving its security posture. The assessment identified open ports on the server and recommended enhancements to data backup practices. By closing unnecessary ports and refining backup solutions, the firm bolstered its resilience against ransomware attacks. Additionally, virtual phishing training strengthened their defense.
Recognizing the complexity and cost of cybersecurity, NEBRC advocates for proactive measures, citing the substantial financial impact of cybercrimes on businesses.
