Joyce Corell, assistant director for supply chain and cyber at the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, said that it’s “bureaucratically difficult” for agencies to comprehend proper supply chain risk management, FedTech reported Thursday.

Corell noted in an interview with the publication that a “variety of disciplines” need to come together to address functions under supply chain risk management including counterintelligence and security.

“People are only just beginning to recognize that there’s a lot of information you can get about risk if you purchase information from commercial data providers,” she said.

Agencies also need to consider intellectual property protection in technology development efforts and invest in tools to ensure that assets don’t leave critical locations, according to Corell.
