US NCSC highlights ‘foreign risks’ to private sector supply chains

The US National Intelligence’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) has released a video highlighting the threats that ‘foreign entities pose to the private sector’s supply chain and to the public sector organizations that utilize private sector goods and services’.

The video coincides with other NCSC efforts to help government and industry address supply chain risks. It raises awareness of increased risk to supply chains due to the evolving dependence on globally sourced commercial information and technologies for mission critical systems and services. The risks are passed to end users through products and services that may contain defective, counterfeit or otherwise tainted components—such as compromised telecommunications equipment.
