In an increasingly connected world, the security of our networks is critical to ensure that consumers, businesses and governments can reach the full potential of their technologies. Since nearly every sector of the global economy relies on a robust international ICT supply chain, every contributor throughout the supply chain has a responsibility to address the risks they face.

This is why TIA QuEST Forum and our participants decided to build a new cybersecurity and supply chain security management system that will help organizations verify that suppliers and technology components can be trusted.

TIA QuEST Forum’s SCS 9001 provides a means for network operators, service providers, systems integrators, manufacturers, buyers, and suppliers across the global information and communication technology (ICT) and IoT supply chains to verify that network hardware and software components and subcomponents meet critical security benchmarks to mitigate the risk of cybersecurity attacks.

SCS 9001 was developed to establish a measurable, third party verifiable standard and draws from our 25 years of experience in managing and expanding process improvement standards, namely TL9000.

Security requires independent verification and the benchmarking component of our system helps drive continuous improvement. Successfully completing SCS 9001 will enable ICT organizations to demonstrate that their products, solutions and services are trusted.
