The interconnectedness of the world economy today makes the global supply chain vulnerable to disruption at any time. Vulnerability associated with known risks can be anticipated while other risks are unexpected.

Unexpected shutdowns lead to lost productivity and lost revenues – and depending on the type of event, even reputational damage.
