ISO 28000 Supply Chain Security Management System

ISO 28000 Supply Chain Security Management System

ISO 28000 is a standard developed for organizations that want to address the issue of supply chain security within a management system framework. The standard, which was first published in 2007 and revised in 2022, explains the rules, principles and procedures required for the establishment, operation and continuous improvement of a supply chain security management system. Any organization large or small with a supply chain can implement the ISO 28000 standard and verify supply chain security. ISO 28000 is largely consistent with ISO´s other management systems, addressing every stage of the supply chain and ensuring that all security hazards are under control and properly managed. Businesses that meet the standard requirements can apply to independent accredited audit and certification bodies for the ISO 28000 Supply Chain Security Management System Certificate. You can get support from Aşan Danışmanlık in preparation for certification, training, certificate application, documentation, auditing and other processes.

Supply Chain Security Coverage

Supply chain security is a critical issue in supply chain management that focuses on risk management of external suppliers, vendors, logistics and transportation processes. Its purpose is to identify, analyze and mitigate the risks inherent in working with other organizations as part of the supply chain. Supply chain security encompasses both physical security for products and cybersecurity for software and services. Today, there are no uniform supply chain security guidelines or best practices, as supply chain management can vary widely from business to business and many different organizations may be involved. A consistent supply chain security strategy requires risk management principles and ensuring cybersecurity. It also takes into account protocols set by government agencies such as ministries, or customs regulations for international supply chains.

In the past, the supply chain security approach focused primarily on physical security and integrity. Physical risks include internal and external risks such as theft, sabotage and terrorism. Organizations often mitigate physical attacks by monitoring shipments and checking regulatory paperwork. In addition, vendors may be required to secure shipments by following certain quality guidelines. In this context, a business may work with several different vendors to ensure a stable supply of commercial products. For the purpose of checking physical security, external auditors can go to a factory and businesses can check the background of the personnel. Shipments can be recorded, protected and checked before and after sending at every stage to stop possible manipulations, corruption attempts or theft.
With the development of technology, cyber threats on supply chain security have started to increase over time. Cyber threats include malware attacks, hacking, unauthorized ERP access in IT and software systems, and vulnerabilities that are unintentionally or maliciously integrated into purchased, open source, or proprietary software used by organizations. Supply chain security here primarily includes minimizing the risks from using software developed by another organization and securing corporate data accessed by another organization in your supply chain. It is not possible for organizations to definitively accept that the software they use or purchase is safe.

Because close collaboration is often required between businesses, suppliers, and vendors, computer networks can be intertwined or sensitive data can be shared. This can result in breaches and vulnerabilities affecting many organizations. Cybercriminals can use it to attack weaker organizations in the supply chain rather than directly attacking the target.

Supply Chain Security Best Practices

Supply chain security covers many areas of activity and varies widely from organization to organization. The risk management principles set forth in the ISO 28000 standard can guide the strategy to identify threats or potential problems and implement the right precautions.
