Resilient American supply chains will build domestic manufacturing capacity and maintain America’s competitive edge in research and development.  Close cooperation on resilient supply chains with allies and partners who share our values will foster and strengthen the capacity to respond to international disasters and emergencies.  One way to leverage the value of the CUI program as part of fortifying the resilience of the nation’s supply chain is with safeguarding appropriate information.  The CUI program helps protect the supply chain by providing a mechanism for safeguarding and/or controlling the dissemination of applicable sensitive information.  This ensures those that require access can do so appropriately and securely.  The United States needs resilient, diverse, and secure supply chains to ensure our economic prosperity and national security. 

The National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) is planning podcasts, webinars, conferences, panels, blogs, and engagements on social media.  Stay tuned.
