In recognition of National Supply Chain Integrity Month, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is partnering with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the Department of Defense, and other government and industry partners to promote a call to action for a unified effort by organizations across the country to strengthen global supply chains.
With the nation’s critical infrastructure dependent on information and communications technology (ICT) to operate, effective risk management depends on a unity of effort to understand the complex and interconnected nature of supply chains. As the nation’s risk advisor, CISA is committed to working with government and industry partners to enhance the security and resilience of the global ICT supply chain from the evolving risks of tomorrow.
Each week, CISA will promote resources, tools, and information—including those developed by the public-private ICT SCRM Task Force—focused on a different theme, to include:
- Week 1: Building Collective Supply Chain Resilience,
- Week 2: Assessing ICT Trustworthiness,
- Week 3: Understanding Supply Chain Threats, and
- Week 4: Knowing the Essentials.
Additionally, CISA will release two new tools to help organizations assess the trustworthiness of their vendors and suppliers as well as a social media toolkit with sample messaging and videos that can be used to spread the word spread the word about the importance of supply chain resiliency.
