Event: Facilitating Interoperability: Bridging the Gaps in Supply Chain Security
From The Internet Governance Forum:
- Tatyana Bolton, Policy Director, Cybersecurity and Emerging Threats, R Street Institute
We have to move to a proactive security posture to harden the internet. There are security communities in place, but there is a gap between communities that is often closed in reaction to a threat event. We need to have that gathering of skills from across industry and government(s) to influence the supply chain to build interoperable secure services, software and components.
Interoperability of the functional Internet is driven by three primary disciplines: policy, technology, and intelligence. While each is mature in its own right, the collaboration between any two and among the three currently leaves potential for improved cooperation where the disciplines intersect. This panel discussion explores the gaps in interoperability and how to ensure more interoperability, collaboration, and cooperation in addressing security concerns and threats in the converging supply chains.
