Cyber Security Resources


Cyber security has recently become one of the most important issues facing our industry today. Each year more companies within the global supply chain have become victims of these malicious attacks. These attacks disrupt the movement of goods throughout the world and can affect your business even if your company isn’t directly attacked. Cyber terrorism is a threat to the very existence of your business. 

Most companies are ill-equipped to deal with cyber threats. The Airforwarders Association is doing its part to help educate the global supply chain. Our goal is to provide resources and educational material in the hope your company can be better prepared to defend your business against this ever-growing threat.

Should your company be attacked, how well you are prepared to respond will determine the future of your business.

Please review the material provided here and let us know how we can better assist you.
