Securing U.S. Supply Chains: Addressing Our Vulnerabilities with Jeanette McMillian

Episode 219

Happy Supply Chain Awareness Month! Since February of last year, the Biden Administration has spotlighted an urgent need to strengthen, secure and diversify our supply chains, both as a matter of economic prosperity and national security. While these concerns are not new, recent world events have exacerbated supply chain disruptions, exposing a range of vulnerabilities across sectors. This week, host Elisa is joined by Jeanette McMillian, to debrief six recent supply chain reports issued in response to E.O. 14017. What do these reports reveal about the fragility of our supply chains? Which sectors are most at risk? And what can we do to better protect our existing supply networks?

Jeanette McMillian is the Assistant Director of Supply Chain and Cyber, National Counterintelligence and Security Center, ODNI
