Michele Iversen on Tools to Protect DoD’s Supply Chain

Michele Iversen, deputy chief CIO at the Department of Defense, said she is working on illumination tools aimed at protecting the Pentagon’s supply chain, Fifth Domain reported Tuesday.

Iversen said Tuesday at the annual CyberCon conference that she is developing a decision support platform designed to reveal a “bare minimum set of publicly available supply chain information” and wants the CIO office to field the tool as a service.

She also noted that the Pentagon is teaming up with a company to address a cyber vulnerability identified in the department’s technology platform.

“And we have seen bad things coming from those products, so we are looking at how to use our authorities … [to] block those products or companies for national security systems,” she added.
