— Designing Risk-Tolerant Cyber Supply Chain Communities

ByRichard M. Douglass

In the remaining chapters of this part of the book, we focus on the impact of volatility on so-called cyber supply chains, and how information technology can be and is used not only to mitigate the impacts of volatility, but to take competitive advantage of it. We define the cyber supply chain as all of the information flows, technologies, and IT infrastructure and processes that support the other key types of supply chains-physical, financial, and service.
