The NDIA is pleased to offer their second workshop designed to identify ways in which Trusted Microelectronics can contribute to greater systems security and information assurance. The Trusted Suppliers Steering Group has organized the agenda for this half-day workshop to provoke an interactive exchange of ideas to improve security for defense systems and networks.
At our first workshop, held in June, we heard from Government officials on their thinking behind DoDI 5200.44. Now we would like to hear from Industry representatives who identify and manage supply chain risks. What are the supply chain risks beyond the ASICs covered by DoDI 5200.44? What is the difference between a Trusted Supplier and a trustworthy supplier, and how do you choose which is best for your program? How do anti-tamper and anti-counterfeit initiatives inform program protection decisions?
We plan to gain insight from individual speakers followed by a Government panel discussion on the challenges with comprehensive supply chain risk management and program protection. Representatives from the Trusted Suppliers Steering Group will be on hand to describe how they can address those challenges.
The Trusted Suppliers Steering Group is a self-formed alliance of companies that have been accredited by Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) to provide Trusted Microelectronics products and services to Government programs. The Group consists of Aeroflex Corporation, BAE Systems Inc., Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, Honeywell International Inc., Intrinsix Corp, Northrop Grumman Corporation, ONSemiconductor, Photronics Inc., and Teledyne Technologies inc.
