Growing interdependencies between parties in the (globalized) supply chain

Organizations are working together with and utilize products from software vendors and equipment vendors all over the world. This causes an increase in dependency on third parties which are sometimes not that familiar. Vendor lock-in is one of the possible consequences, and it decreases the overall transparency on how data is managed or where it is stored. Furthermore, the overall security of an organization becomes dependent on the quality of security in the products and services of third parties.
