Trust, transparency, and integrity of software supply chains is at the center of many of the global security and safety challenges confronting communities around the world, including government agencies and the industries that support them or provide our critical infrastructure. The pandemic, utility ransomware attacks, the attack on SolarWinds, and the Ever Given have brought supply chain security, resilience, integrity, transparency, and trustworthiness into sharpened focus to a broader audience, and the many inadequacies have surfaced regarding timely access to reliable suppliers, software, and stocks of fuel, personal protective equipment, micro-electronics, medical devices, and food supplies, to name a few.

At the same time, the computerization of everything gave rise to pervasive cyber threats for more and more of the capabilities and infrastructure we and our organizations rely upon to function – including those stemming from vulnerabilities inherent in repurposed software of often dubious provenance and unknown pedigree. Further complicating this landscape is the increasingly globalized nature of the technology in these systems and lack of transparency. Adversaries large and small seek to inject themselves into every conceivable stage of software technology development, supply, and support, for disruptive, monetary and intelligence goals of their own.

This session will discuss the capabilities emerging across industry and government to assess and address the challenges to providing trustworthy software supplies with assurance of integrity and transparency to their composition, source, and veracity – the building blocks of software supply chains we can gain justifiable confidence in at scale and speed.
