The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the way the world works in almost every aspect and has definitely highlighted weaknesses in the traditional supply chains across the globe. 

On this episode of Transmission, host Sebastian Blanco looks at the deeper implications of supply chain shift and where those supply chains could be headed in the future. 

Blanco welcomes Dionis Teshler, CTO and co-founder of GuardKnox, to discuss his opinions on the rethinking of supply chains. Teshler says there needs to be more focus on a new tier of cybertech suppliers to support supply chains of the future.
