MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN


As we head into the 2020’s, I look back on the tremendous growth that supply chain security has seen over the past decade. In 2010, we were still getting our feet wet in eCommerce and today it has more than tripled as a proportion of in-store vs online retail sales with $7.4 billion in online sales just this last Black Friday. The way we live, work, and do business is transforming and will continue to change.

It’s never more been crucial for security professionals to be relentless in driving innovation across all channels in our organizations that maintains a high level of integrity of protection for our business, our goods, and our people so that our customers prosper.

That’s why the annual ISCPO conference continues to be a unique platform to share best practices, hear from global speakers, and meet with fellow peers and top vendors. Check out our conference web site for full details and catch your early bird rate til the end of the year.

On behalf of the ISCPO, I wish you the very best of the upcoming Holiday season.

Byron Smith
