National Supply Chain Integrity Month Has Ended

Throughout the month of April, the Department of Defense (DOD), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), and other government and industry partners promoted a call-to-action campaign to raise awareness of supply chain threats and mitigation efforts during “National Supply Chain Integrity Month.”

The Center for Development of Security Excellence (CDSE) hosted two supply chain webinars:

  • Supply Chain Risk Management 2021
  • Supply Chain Due Diligence 2021

If you missed either webinar, you will have another chance to view them once they are posted in our webinar archive. We will put a notice in the Flash when both webinars are available online.

Additionally, CDSE released the April Pulse, which focused on National Supply Chain Integrity Month. CISA and the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) also made several new products available in support of supply chain integrity awareness.

National Supply Chain Integrity Month may have ended in April, but the need for awareness and vigilance continues for the rest of the year. Find information, tools, and resources to aid in this ongoing campaign to protect our Nation’s supply chain:
