The Information Communications Technology Supply Chain Task Force, a public private group developed by The Department of Homeland Security, has recently met to take the first steps in designing operational responses to security risks in the supply chain. These playbooks will be created for government and businesses alike.
Matan Or-El, Co-Founder and CEO at Panorays:
“The work of the Information Communications Technology Supply Chain Task Force in developing playbooks for both government agencies and US organizations to hammer out operational responses to security risks in the supply chain is critical. As cybercriminals use sophisticated approaches to infiltrating the supply chain from product inception to end-of-lifecycle, all links in the chain must be secured in very different ways. Even after a playbook has been designed and implemented, online companies will have to continue to monitor the cybersecurity of all digital assets on a continuous basis, including all third-party vendors. This undertaking requires automation to review and alert on any possible holes in the security fabric so they can be quickly addressed.”
