Information sharing is a key ingredient in any supply chain management (SCM) system and is critical for improving supply chain performance and enhancing competitive advantage of an organization. However, many organizations are reluctant to share information with their supply chain partners because of lack of trust, the fear of information leakage and security breakage from malicious individuals or groups. Through extensive literature review, this paper examines the possible security threats/attacks in a SCM system and identifies the key technologies in supporting the security and privacy of information sharing in SCM, in the hope of facilitating organizations? willingness and capability in sharing information by recognizing and implementing effective security measures.
