Identity Theft: An Overview on Staying Safe

Credit. It seems simple enough. Borrow money, pay it back, and repeat if necessary. But, what if someone else is borrowing in your name, not paying it back and leaving you virtually helpless when you need to secure a loan? You’ve just become a victim of Identity Theft.

Losing Lean Religion
Sourcing with lean suppliers does not mean you have a lean supply chain. The phrase “lean supply chain performance” is often used to describe what should be the primary goal of every OEM supply management department. You may think this is a complicated way of saying that supply management should be sourcing with lean suppliers. That alone, however, is not sufficient for designing a lean-performing supply chain.

Got Backups?
If you use a computer or mobile device long enough, something will eventually go wrong. You may accidentally delete the wrong files, have a hardware failure, or lose a device. Even worse, malware, such as ransomware, may wipe your files and/or hold them captive. At times like these, backups are often the only way you can rebuild your digital life.
