NEMA’s Cybersecurity Council Releases Supply Chain Best Practices

ROSSLYN, VA. - The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), on behalf of its Cybersecurity Council, published NEMA CPSP 1-2015 Supply Chain Best Practices, a white paper that addresses U.S. supply chain integrity throughout the product lifecycle.

This document identifies a recommended set of supply chain best practices and guidelines that electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers can implement during product development to minimize the possibility that bugs, malware, viruses, or other exploits can be used to negatively impact product operation. The paper represents best practices that should be considered in design, manufacture, and delivery of products across the supply chain.

The area of Supply Chain Risk Management was identified for development, alignment, and collaboration in the companion roadmap document for the NIST Cybersecurity Framework written in response to the Presidential Executive Order 13636, "Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity."

For each phase of a product's lifecycle, this white paper provides an identification of risks and their relevance, an analysis to determine implications, and recommendations that electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers should incorporate.

NEMA CPSP 1-2015 Supply Chain Best Practices may be downloaded at no cost on the NEMA website.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) represents nearly 400 electrical, medical imaging, and radiation therapy manufacturers. Our combined industries account for more than 400,000 American jobs and more than 7,000 facilities across the U.S. Domestic production exceeds $117 billion per year. Our industry is at the forefront on electrical safety, reliability, resilience, efficiency, and energy security.

The Colloquium recognizes that the protection of information and infrastructures that are used to create, store, process, and communicate information is vital to business continuity and security. The Colloquium's goal is to work together to define current and emerging requirements for information assurance education and to influence and encourage the development and expansion of information assurance curricula, especially at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
