Cyber threats in trucking have skyrocketed since the onset of pandemic

November 26, 2021

A new report from cybersecurity company Coro predicts escalating cyber attacks on transportation and trucking companies that are supporting an already duressed supply chain this holiday season.

Nearly 30% of transportation and logistics organizations reported more than 20 supply chain disruptions via cyber attack last year, according to BCI’s Supply Chain Resilience Report 2021 – up from just 4.8% reporting the same number in 2019.

Across all industries, Coro found the number of cyber attacks is increasing, but transportation stands out as one of the fastest growing sectors with attacks already having risen almost 150% between January 2020 and today.
