Supply Chain ISAC Report Of Cargo Theft ActivitySource: LoJack SCI, Inc.
The Supply Chain Information Sharing and Analysis Center’s (SC-ISAC) primary mission is to facilitate communication among supply chain dependent industry stakeholders in order to help secure the global supply chain. Towards this end, the SC-ISAC has created a subscription based-trusted community of manufacturers, shippers, distributors, consignees, law enforcement and insurance entities, where critical information impacting the supply chain is shared.
The SC-ISAC collects information from our membership and various public sources on supply chain disruptions. The information of cargo theft –related incidents, including initial notification and updates to investigations are published once or twice weekly. Fraudulent activity, including carrier identity theft and seized counterfeit goods are also included in the bulletins to heighten the awareness amongst the membership of these types of crimes. The SC-ISAC also publishes scheduled training events and industry seminars throughout North America to further enhance the knowledge and skills of our membership as well as foster relationships between public and private sectors. Critical time-sensitive information, published as Alerts, include specific and actionable steps that membership organizations can integrate into their current security protocols thereby minimizing vulnerabilities to the specific reported criminal activity. The SC-ISAC also analyzes the collected theft data and publishes four quarterly reports and an annual report on Cargo Theft Activity. Throughout 2011, the Supply Chain ISAC published 91 bulletins, 8 Alerts, four quarterly reports and an annual report.
