Jason Klitenic, general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, mentioned supply chain security-related questions that ODNI intends to address and one of those concerns with the intelligence community’s information sharing efforts, Fifth Domain reported Wednesday.

“If we pick up intel or information that there’s a product out there that may have a vulnerable but we’re aware of it, but the company may not be aware of it, how can we possibly make sure that the company … is aware of it?” Klitenic said Wednesday at the American Bar Association.

The other question he mentioned deals with influencing security compliance of suppliers through security requirements within contracts.

“How far can we go in terms of including contractual terms that impose security obligations and enforcing compliance with those obligations?” Klitenic said.
