WASHINGTON – Today, ITI, the global voice of the tech sector, released the following statement in response to the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Supply Chain Risk Management Task Force’s announcement of initial areas of work. The workstreams are part of the Task Force’s ongoing efforts to use public-private partnerships to help identify risk-based solutions and best practices to tackle the increasingly complex threats associated with global ICT supply chains.
“The ICT Supply Chain Risk Management Task Force holds the potential to serve as one of the primary drivers of federal supply chain efforts moving forward,” said John Miller, ITI Vice President of Policy and Law and Co-Chair of the Task Force. “The progress over the past week on four strategic workstreams puts industry and our U.S. government partners on the right path to developing meaningful solutions to our shared global supply chain challenges. We look forward to participating in this ongoing public-private collaboration and leveraging its work to drive policy recommendations on this critical issue.”
ITI co-leads the Task Force on behalf of the IT sector, along with counterparts from the Communications sector and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The Task Force is convened by the DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and includes more than 60 organizations from across the ICT industry and federal government.
