Intelligence, Defense Agencies Partner With CISA on Annual Supply Chain Resilience Campaign
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has launched the sixth iteration of National Supply Chain Integrity Month, a campaign held every April aimed at raising awareness of risks affecting critical logistics infrastructure for software and hardware. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense and other agencies and commercial organizations are collaborating with CISA for the event.
For 2023, the theme is “Supply Chain Risk Management – The Recipe for Resilience.” Efforts throughout the month are meant to encourage the adoption of SCRM strategies among stakeholders and partners.
Each week will focus on a specific aspect of SCRM. The first is expected to cover the basic principles for supply chain resilience while the second will deal with identifying resources for small and medium-sized businesses. The third week is planned to cover the trustworthiness of vendors, and the fourth will center around common threats to the supply chain.
According to Mona Harrington, the National Risk Management Center’s assistant director, organizations need to exercise care in procurement and apply basic cyber hygiene as new technologies integrate into operations. She recommended that the public and private sectors collaborate on being proactive on SCRM, CISA said Monday.
