Supply Chain Risk Management Foundation/Framework

April is Supply Chain Integrity month.  Increased risk to supply chains are due to evolving dependence on globally sourced commercial Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and other components of mission critical systems and services. Resulting residual risks are passed to end-user enterprises in the form of products and services that may contain defective, counterfeit or otherwise tainted components with malware, exploitable weaknesses and vulnerabilities from sources with unknown trust. Supply Chain Risk Management is a systematic process for managing this risk by identifying vulnerabilities and threats throughout the "supply chain" and developing mitigation strategies to combat those threats whether presented by the supplier, the supplied product and its subcomponents, or the distribution chain. Join our partners at the National Counterintelligence and Security Center in promoting awareness all month long.
