Let’s talk about Supply Chain Integrity. It's more than Cyber

By Steve Geary | 09/26/2019 | 9:19 AM

Bill Evanina, director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, doesn’t think we should be focused on Cyber Security.

In remarks published by the Federal News Network, Evanina said, “I think the question I’d ask every federal employee and contractor to go back and ask your organization, ‘What are you doing to advise and inform your supply chain integrity? What are we doing as an organization to protect our supply chain integrity?  Every single government employee and contractor has a role in this. This is not owned and operated by the chief information officer and the chief information security officer. We all, as government employees and contractors, own a piece of the stake of the supply chain integrity.”

The next time somebody tells you that you have a cyber problem, acquaint them with all the players across the organization who play a critical role in maintaining Supply Chain Integrity.
