The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) has awarded a contract to LMI and Interos Solutions to improve supply chain risk management processes at the Department of Defense (DOD). As DOD increases its reliance on commercially available technology, the use of equipment with embedded processing capability, and connected global information networks, the potential for unwanted access to networks, systems, and information is growing.

Recent cyber events have demonstrated the potential for a wide variety of events to disrupt the ability to supply the military with critical commodities. The globalization of suppliers and adversaries is growing at an unprecedented rate, and these new vulnerabilities pose a myriad of threats in today’s complex world. In the private sector industrial base, business arrangements are made and changed in a moment’s notice, making managing the risks in the supply chain a significant challenge. DOD is shoring up its ability to evaluate the known or potential risks vendors bring to a multitude of defense supply chains.

“The DOD supply chain faces a wide range of risks, from counterfeit products to cyber threats,” said Interos CEO Jennifer Bisceglie. “With our proven track record in supporting federal agencies in supply chain risk management, we will strengthen the DOD’s procurement processes and promote effective mitigation activities.”

Interos Solutions is a leading expert on supply chain risk management (SCRM), business due diligence, and open source intelligence (OSINT).
