TheÂ Office of the Director of National Intelligenceâs National Counterintelligence and Security Center has unveiled a video that seeks to informÂ publicÂ andÂ private entities on foreign risks facing the industry’s supply chain.
ODNI said ThursdayÂ it released the video at a supply chain risk management conference as part of NCSC’s efforts to aid theÂ government and industry in supply chain risk mitigation.
“Our adversaries are trying to figure out what U.S. industryâwhether telecom or defenseâwill be doing three years from now,” said NCSC Director Bill Evanina.
“That is why NCSC and the ODNI are trying to find creative ways to help U.S. industry protect its supply chain and thereby help protect America,” Evanina added.
ODNI notedÂ supply chains face threatsÂ from the use ofÂ globally-sourced commercial information and technologies to developÂ systems and services.
Risks can also affect end users through products and services thatÂ mayÂ featureÂ defective, counterfeit or tampered parts, ODNI said.
NCSC also aims toÂ briefÂ government and industryÂ partners on threats; develop an SCRM blueprint for executive branch agencies and organizations; and createÂ a publicly available online course that will inform interestedÂ entitiesÂ on supply chain risk mitigation.
