Cyber Supply Chains: Risks & Protection

Presented by

Curtis KS Levinson, VP Strategic Cyberspace Science, US Cyber Defence Advisor to NATO

About this talk

Cyber space is composed of, and dependent on, supply chains. Our hardware and software are created in multiple locations by a multitude of suppliers and vendors. A single PC board may contain chips from many different nations, each with their own companies and manufacturing plant. Software is highly dependent on updates, which we receive mostly automatically and is directly incorporated in the software we depend on daily. We, as a society are getting more skilled at protecting our technology from cyber-attack by hardening our network perimeters, improving anti-virus/malware tools and encrypting everything we can. The one thing we DO NOT do is evaluate what our cyber supply chain(s) are. We understand their importance to our daily tasks, to our lifestyles, and to our incomes. We need to looking into what our supply chains really are, understand their functionality and investigate ways to begin protecting them. Viewers will: • Understand the basic nature of cyber supply chains • Gain insight into cyber supply chain vulnerabilities • Learn how to begin protecting our cyber supply chains Presenter: Curtis KS Levinson VP Strategic Cyberspace Science, US Cyber Defence Advisor to NATO
