Once considered an esoteric domain of cybersecurity, Covid-19 has brought supply chain security to the dinner table conversation. The shortages revealed during the pandemic make it clear: Action must be taken to protect and safeguard us.
As “National Supply Chain Integrity Month” continues, join us on April 27 as Joyce Corell of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center delineates the threat landscape and discusses provoking implications for future supply chain integrity with Sean Costigan of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies. The conversation will cover the current policy landscape, which includes actions from all branches of government, as well as how thinking on risk has evolved over the past several years. Joyce will touch on the notion of shared risk and how to think through responsibilities for government, the private sector and the consumer. This hour-long discussion will help tee up a national conversation on supply chain security as NCSC, DoD, DHS and the Cyber Security Summit raise awareness throughout the year.

On the eve of “Supply Chain Security Month” as designated by DHS, the Cyber Security Summit examines the catastrophic attack that occurred last December on SolarWinds, a major U.S.-based provider of cybersecurity tools. The devastating impact rippled across thousands of organizations and gave our industry a moment of pause.
In this one-hour webinar, our expert panelists revisit the attack and discuss how supply chain risk management needs to evolve to counter threats moving forward.
