The Silver Thread of Cyber in the Global Supply Chain

October 2021 Podcast
Matthew J. Butkovic

Matt Butkovic, technical director of risk and resilience in the SEI's CERT Division, discusses with Suzanne Miller the importance of cyber in the global supply chain and his team's work with the World Economic Forum.

“It doesn’t matter if you are a bank, a hospital, or a nonprofit—you’re experiencing now, or will likely experience, the security issues we’ve described by virtue of participating in this cyber-enabled global economy, which is unavoidable. There is really no “off the grid” for very long. This is a roadmap to the things on the grid that you should be aware of when you’re participating in the grid.”

Abstract

The global supply chain touches every aspect of our lives, from fuel prices to the availability of computer chips and supermarket products. In out latest podcast, Matt Butkovic, technical director of risk and resilience at Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute, discusses with Suzanne Miller the supply chain's silver thread of cyber, specifically how cyber both underpins the cyber supply chain and the broader supply chain. Butkovic’s team recently engaged with the World Economic Forum to create an online transformation map, a set of connected topics defining a specific domain of interest. In this episode, Butkovic also discusses work on this map, the importance of cyber resilience, and how to determine the resilience your organization needs and the resilience it currently possesses.
