Supply Chain Vulnerabilities in the Software Era

May 30, 2018 - 4:00 pm

1030 15th Street Northwest
Washington, DC
The increasing complexities of the globalized supply-chain system has introduced myriad new threat vectors for intentional and unintentional compromise of integral components. ‘unintended taint’, the flaws in software unintentionally built into products, is of particular concern. It is of vital importance that we recognize and understand this very significant and credible threat to the uninterrupted functionality of critical infrastructure within the energy sector. 

This Wednesday, join the Cyber Statecraft Initiative as we model a downstream petroleum refinery that will be manipulated in real-time, demonstrating how vulnerabilities in the supply-chain can be affected, followed by a discussion engaging key experts and stakeholders for a progressive and solutions-oriented discussion on how to appropriately identify and mitigate these underappreciated threats to the energy sector.
