Cyber Supply Chain Committee

The Supply Chain Committee’s goal is to facilitate industry, government, and academia interaction in policy, legislative, legal and technical areas directly related to increased resiliency and protecting against supply chain cyber threats and vulnerabilities.  Such interaction is intended to promote the development of a secure, resilient and reliable supply chain and to provide for an exchange of information and views between industry, academia, government and military representatives.  The effective cooperation between these groups is essential to establish and maintain U.S. superiority in supply chain cyber security.
