Cybersecurity and supply chain risks

Aaron Faulkner, managing director for Accenture Federal Services and cybersecurity lead at Accenture discusses supply chain risk.

The supply chain is incredibly complex, he says, and even if we do things like ban the procurement of capabilities from unfriendly nation states, that doesn’t necessarily get us a secure supply chain. Additionally, things like IoT, new devices and a perimeter-less environment elevates the importance of addressing supply chain risks.

He shares that leaders need to have conversations around zero trust and data access — what that looks like laterally — in addition to new countermeasures and defenses to address those concerns.
