FIE Executive Session featuring DHS Supply Chain Risk Management
How is the Federal Government Addressing Risk in the Cyber Supply Chain?
With cyber threats from foreign nations such as Russia, China, Iran and North Korea, the federal government is actively attempting to identify and mitigate supply chain risks in order to protect our digital infrastructure. With a lack of transparency in the manufacturing practices, and the distributed nature of the supply chain, it is imperative to identify and track the chain of custody of these components in order to reduce the threat to the United States. Products such as Kaspersky, ZTE and Hauwei that contain potentially malicious functionality in its hardware and software components are examples of technologies that could compromise the Federal technological ecosystem.
In response to the cyber supply chain threat, the Federal government has created a National Risk Management Center which is a joint Federal government and private sector collaborate effort to stem attacks by foreign adversaries attempting to steal information and corrupt our digital infrastructure. Additionally, DHS created the Information and Communications (ICT) Supply Chain Risk Management Task Force to identify and manage risk associated with the global information and communications technology supply chain.
Come learn how these measures the Federal government is undertaking is strengthening our cyber supply chain and what is next in the combating cyber risk.
