ICT Supply Chain Library

Compiled by CISA and the ICT SCRM Task Force, this library is a non-exhaustive list of free, voluntary resources and information on supply chain programs, rulemakings, and other activities from across the federal government. The resources below are intended to provide a better understanding of the wide array of supply chain risk management efforts and activities underway or in place.

Software Supply Chain Attacks

The Defending Against Software Supply Chain Attacks, released by CISA and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), provides an overview of software supply chain risks and recommendations on how software customers and vendors can use the NIST Cyber Supply Chain Risk Management (C-SCRM) Framework and the Secure Software Development Framework (SSDF) to identify, assess, and mitigate software supply chain risks.

April is National Supply Chain Integrity Month - Week 3

During the third week of National Supply Chain Integrity Month, CISA is emphasizing the importance of understanding supply chain threats. As technology evolves, so does the threat environment. Of particular importance is securing information and communications technology (ICT) supply chains. With ICT serving as the bedrock for the nation’s critical infrastructure, their supply chains are valuable targets for adversaries seeking to steal, compromise, alter, or destroy sensitive information being stored in and communicated through ICT

April is National Supply Chain Integrity Month - Week 2

As National Supply Chain Integrity Month continues, this week’s theme is: Assessing ICT Trustworthiness. Every company and organization that uses information and communications technology (ICT) products and services is part of a complex, globally-interconnected supply chain that, if exploited, can impact national security, economic security, and public health and safety.

ICT SCRM Task Force Vendor Template

The Vendor SCRM Template provides a set of questions regarding an ICT supplier/provider’s implementation and application of industry standards and best practices that can help guide supply chain risk planning in a standardized way. The template provides organizations clarity for reporting and vetting processes when purchasing ICT hardware, software, and services.
