Shell Companies Attack Supply Chain

A ThreatMinder Client Success Story

The Problem: A major international partner’s large supply chain made them vulnerable to attacks from shell companies

The Solution: Implementing ThreatMinder’s Risk-as-a-Service Solution to continuously evaluate the risk criteria for each supplier

The Challenge:

One of ThreatMinder’s clients had a large supply chain that spanned several countries. This provided a way for bad actors to attack the major company. State-based shell companies could purchase a company within the supply chain, thus providing intimate and back-door access into the business.  Because of the massive size of the supply chain, it was difficult to analyze every single individual supplier.

The Results:

The ThreatMinder Risk-as-a-Service Solution allowed for a continuous evaluation of risk criteria for each supplier in the supply chain. We analyzed each individual supplier to get an initial understanding of the business, as well as implemented analysis on an ongoing basis to ensure future compliance. The initial evaluation found some shell companies in the supply chain that were immediately removed, while the ongoing analysis prevented bad actors from attempting to infiltrate the company going forward.
