Counterfeit Mitigation: Building a Counterfeit Resistant Procurement Environment

created: Monday, January 04, 2021 updated: Tuesday, January 05, 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) grew 10 to 15 times over pre-COVID levels. Suppliers have struggled to keep pace with this demand, and counterfeiters have taken advantage of the situation to sell substandard products to desperate buyers. This webinar will address how procurement leaders and their supply chain partners manage counterfeit risks and identify the tools, resources, and practices that procurement organizations can leverage to make informed buying decisions.
