This committee addresses Defense supply chain topics including:

  • Cyber Supply chain risk management
  • Operational technology security for manufacturing
  • Defense supply chain disruptions
  • NIST 800-161,  Supply Chain Risk Management Practices

The committee hosts a series of webinars on manufacturing supply chain topics.
