NCSC thanks the Honorable Dr. Stacey Dixon, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, for providing the keynote address for the 10th Annual Supply Chain Technical Exchange Conference, hosted at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency during the National Supply Chain Integrity Month events. NCSC partnered with several government, industry, and academic experts to bring awareness to the critical supply chains we need to protect. Dr. Dixon’s remarks were especially fitting the theme of including Acquisition, Cyber, and Enterprise (A.C.E.) security into their SCRM programs. Dr. Dixon's remarks underscored the need to have our A.C.E.s at the ready and to "play together" with our SCRM stakeholders to protect the supply chains of the most critical technologies, systems and capabilities. This was truly a great event, and we look forward to advance supply chain security with our stakeholders.

Mission Statement

The mission of NCSC's Supply Chain and Cyber Directorate (SCD) is to enhance the nation's supply chain and cyber security, leveraging multidisciplinary counterintelligence and security expertise to inform, guide, and coordinate integrated risk decisions and responses with strategic partners.

Protecting Supply Chains for Critical Technologies

In October 2021, the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) prioritized outreach efforts in five critical technology sector areas: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Bioeconomy, Autonomous Systems, Quantum, and Semiconductors.

These technologies present unique opportunities and challenges where the stakes are potentially greatest for U.S. economic and national security.

One of the unique challenges is managing the threats and risks to the very complex supply chains that support each one of these critical and emerging technologies.

For National Supply Chain Integrity Month in April 2022, NCSC focused on supply chain security issues unique to AI, specifically machine learning (ML) an AI subset; autonomous systems, specifically autonomous vehicles; and semiconductors

The awareness materials below highlight the unique supply chain issues associated with these critical technologies.
