UNIDIR Side-event: Supply Chain Security in the Digital Age

Room XI (Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland)

Room XI

Palais des Nations

Geneva, Switzerland
Supply chain security is one of the key issues in multilateral norm development processes related to information and communications technology (ICT), and it continues to be a main point of discussion under two UN-led multilateral cyber processes – a new United Nations Group of Governmental Experts (GGE) and an Open-ended Working Group (OEWG) focused on developments in the field of ICT in the context of international security. In its 2015 report, the GGE urged the States to, inter alia, ‘take reasonable steps to ensure the integrity of the supply chain so that end users can have confidence in the security of ICT products’. This event aims to provide an opportunity to discuss established and new methods of operationalizing of the aforementioned GGE norm from different stakeholders’ perspectives and to discuss findings of the UNIDIR’s recent research report ‘Supply Chain Security in the Cyber Age’ (accessible here).
