Supply Chain Security and Software

April 24, 2019 • 1:00 – 3:00 pm EDT

Please join us for a public event on initiatives for securing the software supply chain on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 from 1:00-3:00 pm at the CSIS headquarters.

Within the U.S. government, there is increasing awareness of and movement on the need for a coordinated strategy to prevent, identify, and respond to threats stemming from the software supply chain throughout the acquisition process. At this event, we will discuss some of the various initiatives, including the Department of Defense’s Deliver Uncompromised, along with work at the Carnegie Mellon, BSA | The Software Alliance, and the Department of Commerce, designed to minimize the risk of compromised software infiltrating critical systems.
