Concentration Risk Management in a COVID-19 World

The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the vulnerability of global supply chains to poor concentration risk management. Concentration risk occurs when a large number of suppliers within a given supply chain are located in a single geographic region, making the businesses that depend on them unusually vulnerable to disruption within that region.

Interos’ latest research examines other locations in the world where concentration risk could create a large-scale disruption in the face of a natural disaster – specifically Penang, Malaysia, a key player in the global semiconductor supply chain. Once you’ve reviewed the research, learn more about how the Interos platform can help with concentration risk management by visiting
