The ultimate nightmare scenario for any security executive responsible for the integrity of their supply chain would be having their safeguards circumvented and unknowingly smuggling a weapon of mass destruction into the country.
Fair Lawn, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 31, 2016
The National Retail Federation (NRF) will hold its annual loss prevention conference in Philadelphia June 14-16, 2016, which will be attended by senior security executives representing the biggest names in the industry such as Target, The Home Depot, Microsoft Store, Nordstrom and J. Crew.
Conceived in response to the events of 9/11, the U.S. Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) has become the largest initiative of its type in history. Designed to prevent the commercial supply chain from being victimized by terrorists, it has been replicated by other countries around the globe since it came into existence in 2001.
Internationally recognized as one of the top supply chain security professionals in the industry, Barry Brandman, CEO of Danbee Investigations, will speak about the C-TPAT program, as well as the security risks that exist today with corporate supply chains.
“The ultimate nightmare scenario for any security executive responsible for the integrity of their supply chain would be having their safeguards circumvented and unknowingly smuggling a weapon of mass destruction into the country,” explains Barry Brandman. “The consequences would be catastrophic in many respects.”
As CEO of Danbee Investigations, Brandman has overseen investigations and consulting projects domestically and internationally for major corporations. Companies that have been victimized have called in Danbee Investigations to conduct forensic investigations to determine exactly how the breaches took place.
“Many supply chain security programs look much better on paper. If a company’s safeguards are more cosmetic than meaningful, they have a significantly higher risk of having their controls compromised. At the NRF conference, I’ll be explaining how to mitigate these risks.
