Supply chain security in a high-risk world

Logistics Management’s sister publication, Supply Chain Management Review (SCMR), interviewed security expert Barry Brandman in its July/August 2003 issue, not long after the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. The threats to the security of supply chains have certainly not abated since that interview; if anything, they have only intensified.

So now seems to be the perfect time to revisit the subject of supply chain security. And, once again, Barry Brandman is the go-to guy. Brandman is president of New Jersey-based Danbee Investigations, which provides professional investigative, auditing, and security consulting services to hundreds of major companies.

Brandman has developed a particular expertise in logistics and supply chain management. He’s a frequent speaker at industry conferences such as CSCMP and the International Conference on Cargo Security. He also has authored articles on supply chain security for a wide range of publications.

The underlying message in this current interview with Brandman is clear: In a high-risk world, companies must be proactive when it comes to supply chain security; to be otherwise, invites a host of serious and potentially devastating consequences. SCMR’s Editorial Director Francis J. Quinn conducted the interview.
