The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) has developed a verifiable measurable supply chain security standard.
The information and communications technology (ICT) industry has an obligation to ensure that the devices, equipment, and networks relied on by businesses and consumers, can be trusted. The threat to the global communications infrastructure and the ICT supply chain has reached an all-time high. Emerging technologies will further expand the attack surface.
While existing standards address cybersecurity across various industries, historically they have not focused on the ICT supply chain.
TIA is leading the way on ICT supply chain security with the development of the first-ever global SCS 9001 standard that specifies verifiable and measurable criteria and uses a process-based QMS to verify trusted suppliers.
