Protecting America’s Critical Infrastructure: A Look at CISA’s New Supply Chain Risk Management Office

2 Min Read

The government contracting industry has been facing significant supply chain disruptions in recent years, and the current market conditions, geopolitical events, and rising cyber threats are only making matters worse. In response, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is taking action to mitigate these problems.

CISA has established a new Supply Chain Risk Management (C-SCRM) office, led by former General Services Administration official Shon Lyublanovits, to help public and private sector partners adopt new policies aimed at addressing supply chain challenges.

Join us for the 2023 Information Security and Innovation Forum on Feb. 28, hosted by GovCon Wire, to hear from CISA’s Chief Information Officer, Bob Costello, on CISA’s efforts to protect America’s most critical infrastructure from emerging threats.

To operationalize C-SCRM, CISA is developing training courses on supply chain risk management and hosting a series of roundtables for federal employees, industry professionals, and government representatives. CISA Director Jen Easterly, who was awarded the 2023 Wash100 Award, recently met with the Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, Rep. Mark Green, to discuss the committee’s efforts to counter cyber threats.

In a statement, Rep. Green emphasized the importance of positioning CISA as an information enabler instead of a regulatory agency.
