Protecting the defense industrial base and DOD networks is critical for defending the nation at large, especially as these attacks become more and more sophisticated. Collaboration enables speed and full visibility of the threat landscape for faster detection and response. Now is the time for Collective Defense.

Market Trends Report from GovLoop and IronNet

Cyber attackers are becoming more aggressive and powerful, often because they either are collaborating to cause the most damage or running indiscriminately over companies in the direct path of their intended target. That’s why government agencies need to defend collaboratively as a stronger force. It’s no longer good enough to rely on traditional cybersecurity approaches or try to defend agencies alone.

Only as strong as your weakest link

Mapping out the entire defense base supply chain is imperative for being able to respond to a cyber threat landscape that changes daily. Yet defense agencies are in an unusual predicament when it comes to supply chain security. The federal government relies on contracting with small businesses and large corporations, and each has its own cybersecurity vulnerabilities and risks. The U.S. Government Accountability Office has identified the following supply chain risks:

  • Installation of malicious hardware or software
  • Installation of counterfeit hardware or software
  • Failure or disruption in the production or distribution of critical products
  • Reliance on malicious or unqualified service providers 
  • installation of hardware or software containing unintentional vulnerabilities, such as defective code.

Are your service providers secure?

You may be confident about the DOD security safeguards. But what about the security posture of your third-party service providers? Learn how to mitigate third-party risk in our “Securing the Supply Chain” white paper.

The government
supply chain Imperative

In its “Meeting the Requirements of the Supply Chain Imperative," white paper, the government IT solutions provider Carahsoft reported that across the federal IT supply chain last year, for example, CISA identified nine threat groups, including counterfeit parts and insider threats.

As IT supply chains grow more complicated, they also become more vulnerable. Much like a physical chain has physical links, IT supply chains contain interrelated parts that can become prey for bad actors.
