Securing the Global ICT Supply Chain: An Overview of the New SCS 9001 Standard


Wednesday, July 28, 2021
11:00 am - 12:00 pm - EDT



In a time when ICT suppliers and providers are plagued by ransomware attacks, zero day exploits, and counterfeit components, the members of TIA QuEST Forum have been working at an accelerated pace to develop the Information Communications Technology (ICT) industry’s first comprehensive standard for supply chain security, SCS 9001. Attendees will hear a group of leaders from TIA’s Supply Chain Security Work Group as they explain the key components of the standard and how it will help businesses build trust in their products and services. Topics include security by design, Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) and provenance, process based approach to security, measuring and benchmarking security performance, and the use of automation to support security programs. The webinar will include a panel discussion about how SCS 9001 will help prevent attempted breaches and attacks from devastating more businesses and shattering consumer confidence in our digital infrastructure.
