Mandiant and Interos Join Forces to Advance Supply Chain Cyber ​​Risk Management


COMPANY NEWS: Interos, the fast-growing operational resiliency company, and Mandiant today announced a strategic partnership to provide advanced insights and analytics to help businesses defend against cyberattacks and other threats to their operational resilience. The collaborative partnership is designed to bring new insights to market based on insights gathered from the Interos Resilience Lab, as well as the Interos SaaS platform, and frontline investigations and remediation conducted by Mandiant regarding high-impact cyberattacks around the world.

Mandiant M-Trends 2022 Rreport shows that global supply chains remain an attractive target for threat actors looking to leverage trusted business-to-business relationships, as attacking the supply chain offers the opportunity to move from one network of suppliers to multiple networks customers at a time. In fact, when the initial infection vector was identified, supply chain compromise accounted for 17% of intrusions investigated by Mandiant in 2021, compared to less than 1% in 2020.

In addition, new data from Interos‘Global Supply Chain Annual Report 2022 reveals that organizations have been impacted by an average of three major supply chain disruptions in the past 12 months (not including the war in Ukraine), costing a total of $182 million in lost revenue. Cyberattacks account for $37 million of that figure. Additionally, the overwhelming majority (91%) of executives indicated that their organizations had experienced supply chain disruptions from Tier 2 and Tier 3 suppliers in their extended supply chain.

“Interos is focused on helping organizations achieve operational resilience; continuously providing in-depth analysis of risk criticality and risk management,” said Marshall Heilman, CTO of Mandiant. “With Interos, Mandiant will be able to proactively resolve issues with a company leading the way in ensuring organizations of all sizes understand the key attack vectors across the supply chain, the threat and threats of nation states.”






The partnership announcement follows a recent alert from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) warning of an increase in malicious cyber activity targeting managed service providers (MSPs). The advisory also recommended that MSPs understand and proactively manage their supply chain risks.

“The CISA warning is further evidence that existing supply chain risk management systems were not designed for today’s complex risk environment,” said CTO Interos, Nishant Gupta. “Our collaboration with Mandiant will provide multi-factor risk insights to help commercial and government organizations better protect targeted entities in their relationships with third parties to protect against disruption, ransomware and intellectual property theft. We are proud to partner with Mandiant to help executives uncover hidden business relationships and expose themselves to cyber vulnerabilities.
