Secure management of Australia's commercial critical infrastructure presents ongoing challenges to both the owners of this infrastructure as well as to the government. It is currently managed through high-level information sharing via collaboration but does this situation suit the commercial sector? One of the issues facing Australia is that the majority of critical infrastructure resides under the control of the business sector and certain aspects such of the critical infrastructure such as supply chain management (SCM) systems are distributed across a number of entities. The paper focuses upon the security and risk issues associated with SCM systems within the realms of critical infrastructure protection.
