Live Webinar: Reducing the Risk of Electronics Counterfeiting
by Craig Hodgson, on March 17, 2017
Electronics counterfeiting continues to be a hot-button issue as manufacturers lose $160B+ annually in revenue. Even more concerning is the significant health and safety hazard facing consumers who unknowingly purchase counterfeit electronic components. In a recent test of 400 counterfeit iPhone adapters conducted by UL (Underwriters Laboratories), an independent safety science company, 99% failed a basic electric strength test. And 12 of the devices were so poorly designed they posed a risk of lethal electrocution.
New government regulations and industry standards aim to reduce the risk of counterfeit electronics—but still much of the burden falls on companies to safeguard operations. What can you do to protect your product, your reputation, your customers from counterfeit and gray market components? How can you assure your customers that they can trust the security of your supply chain?
Mark your calendar to attend this timely and insightful webinar “Reducing the Risk of Electronics Counterfeiting”. Featuring renowned supply chain security expert Robert Metzger, the webinar will cover these important topics:
