But since then, Satyam is back solidly under new ownership (now Mahindra Satyam), and security measures in India and elsewhere have kept terrorism's specter largely at bay. While the risk of terrorism or a sudden failure of a key supplier -- then top of mind -- have fallen in priorities, new issues have emerged as more likely near-term concerns.
