During the third week of National Supply Chain Integrity Month, CISA is emphasizing the importance of understanding supply chain threats. As technology evolves, so does the threat environment. Of particular importance is securing information and communications technology (ICT) supply chains. With ICT serving as the bedrock for the nation’s critical infrastructure, their supply chains are valuable targets for adversaries seeking to steal, compromise, alter, or destroy sensitive information being stored in and communicated through ICT.

DAF continues implementation efforts for CUI - Air Force
ARLINGTON, Va. (AFNS) -- On March 6, 2020, the Department of Defense Instruction 5200.48, Controlled Unclassified Information, was published. This instruction served as initial DoD guidance for the implementation of the CUI program and establishment of the DoD CUI Registry. Department of the Air Force personnel were already well versed with the necessity of protecting mission-critical unclassified information, but the release of the DoDI brought about additional responsibilities, procedures and dissemination controls, that warranted the development of new approaches to safeguard CUI.
