Pt. 2: 5 Scary Security Stories to Learn From
powered by Sounder

This is the fourth episode in Ingram Micro’s replay series, where we share with you some of our favorite episodes over the last year that will be helpful to you right now.

This is part two of a two-part episode from October 2019. In it, Keri Roberts chats with Chris Paffrath and Bill Vogtsberger, two of Ingram’s top security leaders, about organized crime and security. 

In this episode you’ll hear about phishing attacks and a real life example of how something as simple as leaving a door open more often than it should be at a facility caused an attack. 

As we head into the new year, now is a great time to make sure your security is up to date and ready to take on new challenges. Learn more about how to be involved with Ingram Micro’s Security BU program by contacting Irma Garcia.

1. The Dock Door Incident

The situation: At one of Ingram Micro’s facilities, a maintenance dock door was being left open at times to provide access for maintenance workers.
An individual took advantage of the unsecured door and stole product from the warehouse.
What we learned: 
  • Understand your processes and procedures, and follow them
  • Know that these situations can happen to you
"Understand what your processes and procedures are, and follow them." - Cris Paffrath

2. The Spiderman in Italy

The situation: A group of individuals penetrated an Ingram Micro property, repelling into the building from a skylight.
Although the alarm sounded, security at the facility thought it was a faulty fire alarm. The group stole product from the property and potentially ziplined back to their getaway vehicle.
What we learned: 
  • Commit to combatting the preventable risks
  • Understand that there will always be security risks
These stories have helped Ingram Micro consistently improve its security and processes. We hope these lessons also help your team prevent security breaches.
