No room for compromise in supply chain security: New DoD initiative establishes benchmark for strategic ICT sourcing - Story

September 03, 2018
In response to the growing nexus between physical risk (counterfeits) and cyber risk (infiltration of systems and exfiltration of data) the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has introduced a new policy adding security as a fundamental pillar of federal acquisition and supply chain risk management. Component manufacturers in the military and aerospace arenas - as well as those in all high-tech verticals - can adopt current and emerging best-practice approaches to mitigate both cybersecurity threats and counterfeit component exposures.

When it comes to thwarting counterfeit activity, choosing trusted partners to provide embedded systems equipment can actually be half the battle in guaranteeing a clean supply chain.

Counterfeit components: The stakes are rising - Story

July 22, 2016
One of the greatest risks to the welfare of not only U.S. service members, but all citizens around the world, is the proliferation of counterfeit electronic components into the military and aerospace supply chain. With the growing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies within practically every conceivable market segment, this risk is growing by orders of magnitude. Every person in the component supply chain should be doing their best to put an end to the counterfeit scourge before we find ourselves face to face with a systems failure or breach, driven either by greed or maliciousness, that could cause irreparable harm. All segments in the supply chain of things must take responsibility to eliminate this challenge.
