Late last week, Bloomberg wrote a report titled The Big Hack: How China Used a Tiny Chip to Infiltrate U.S. Companies. The implications of this report are significant and in the end, whether true or not, will undoubtedly lead to a stricter and more secure supply chain.
There are a few things about this report worth pointing out. Although this article came out last week, I wanted to take some time to reflect on it and see what new developments unfolded before writing about it. I’m glad I did, because subsequent reports, and statements from the companies in question (Apple, and Amazon) brought more clarity to this issue.
