Webinar: Supply Chain Management in Cybersecurity

United States Industries that procure systems in support of their critical infrastructure should have requirements in place to verify that their suppliers have enacted internal processes to ensure that the digital equipment and software provided to them are free of defects, which could enable or result in a cyber-attack that would adversely impact the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of information within their organization. Supply Chain Management focuses on protecting the supply chain such that procurement methods are protected by and between the Acquirer, Integrator, and Supplier – and the acquisitioned system or component is delivered unmolested. System and Service Acquisition requires the need for a standardized cyber security procurement requirement standard. If a system is going through its conceptual design phase, the engineers within the organization need to know what the asset’s cyber security requirements are, such that the vendor (supplier or integrator) understands what needs implemented. The lack of a ‘protected’ supply chain and procurement environment could allow unacceptable risk once the system is introduced back into the production environment. The NEI 08-09 Rev 6. Appendix E 11 Family of System and Services Acquisition controls require the element of cyber be included and augmented to fit the internal supply chain program/procedures.
