Responding to Supply Chain Attacks: A Roundtable Conversation With Fortinet Leadership

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

Recent cyber breaches involved issues of technology (ranging from intruder behavior to organizational IT practices), supply chain integrity (where code is developed and housed), and corporate transparency (such as 'unknown' use of software components and subcontractors). Custom-build 'low and slow' Advanced Persistent Threat operations of this type are difficult to detect or to counter.

Join Fortinet and Carahsoft for an interactive roundtable to discuss the kinds of action organizations might take to harden themselves against similar activities.

During this roundtable, we will consider:
  • What is the range of technical solutions organizations should consider- and does this vary according to their mission and the available resources?
  • What changes should we make around transparency into securing intellectual property such as computer code throughout its lifecycle?
  • What can we do to increase transparency and accountability of relationships between suppliers and subcontractors of complex products such as software suites or services?
  • Does cybersecurity have a special role to play in addressing this problem- and if so, what are practical near term steps to consider?
