Strategic Objective 5.5. of the recently released National Cybersecurity Strategy states that global interconnected supply chains produce the information, communications, and operational technology products and services that power the U.S. economy, many of which are reliant upon a growing network of foreign suppliers.  This dependency on critical foreign products and services from untrusted suppliers introduces multiple sources of systemic risk to our digital ecosystem; mitigating this risk will require long-term, strategic collaboration between public and private sectors at home and abroad to rebalance global supply chains and make them more transparent, secure, and resilient, and trustworthy.  This panel will discuss the various sources and types of risk posed to our cyber supply chains and traditional and non-traditional methods policymakers should deploy to mitigate such risks.
