Abstract

Cyber supply chain security is important for many businesses these days. In this paper, we investigate cyber supply chain (CSC) security issues in four Korea-based global companies (Samsung Electronics, Hyundai Motors, LG Electronics, and POSCO) with effective CSC security. No significant technological differences are evident between these companies and other global companies. Although most managers at all levels agree that security is important, security at Korea-based global companies tends to be the responsibility of non-executive managers. The well-established security policies in these companies are not always adequately enforced. Security in these Korean companies depends upon their relationships with the IT companies who develop and maintain the CSC. A balance between hierarchical integration and strategic outsourcing seems to be a unique advantage of Korean companies.
