The Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) has launched the most comprehensive industry security standards in its 23-year history by providing a holistic approach to securing the complete supply chain from the protection of warehousing and freight facilities, trucking and multi-modal operations from the escalating supply chain threats and risks including supply chain compliance, shrinkage, cargo crime related attacks and epidemic such as the Coronavirus.

The 2020 revisions of the Association’s Facility Security Requirements (FSR) and Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) – which take effect on 1 July 2020 and are valid for three years - aim to give TAPA’s Manufacturer and Logistics Service Provider (LSP) members the enhanced minimum standards to secure their supply chain with an added focus on addressing cyber attacks.

Under Section 9.0. IT and Cyber Security Threat of the TAPA 2020 FSR Standard – Enhanced Option, TAPA 2020 FSR Standard provides Cyber Security Threat enhancements that are deemed a higher level of protection and can be used in addition to the modules. Manufacturer and LSP members can deploy this section of the FSR Standard to protect their information systems and back-ups against future cyber threats. This section includes implementing an IT Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) that deliberates specific actions for employees to react and assess the situation in case of contingencies.
