Building Trust in the Global Supply Chain
Long supply chains and inadequate product evaluation before deployment create a situation of widespread vulnerability in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) supply chains. As trade grows more globalized, the supply chain has become more complex and challenging. Contemporary commerce involves hundreds of individuals, organizations, technologies, and processes across continents. In this situation, what are the vulnerabilities and what are the possible remedies for addressing those threats? What steps should be taken to ensure that supply chains are protected?
On April 18, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings hosted a forum to explore operational and technological threats to the ICT global supply chain and ways to identify best practices, standards, and third-party assessment for supply chain assurance. A panel of experts discussed the problems involved in cross-border supply chains and ways to address industry-wide risks.
