According to Department of Defense (DoD) Instruction 5200.44, “Protection of Mission Critical Functions to Achieve Trusted Systems & Networks,” SCRM is a systematic process for managing supply chain risk by identifying susceptibilities, vulnerabilities and threats throughout the Department of Defense’s “supply chain” and developing mitigation strategies to combat those threats whether presented by the supplier, the supplied product and its subcomponents, or the supply chain (e.g., initial production, packaging, handling, storage, mission operation, and disposal).”
A single disruption in an organizations’ supply chain can result in a ripple-effect across the entire supply chain. Because of the interconnected nature of networks and product and service supply chains, successfully identifying risks and proactively preparing strategies to defend and recover are critical to the success of any organization.
Risks range from the intentional/unintentional in insertion of malware into software to counterfeit hardware. SCRM best practices as well as those mandated by Federal organizations must include a culture of supply chain governance.
