Processes and procedures should be defined and implemented to manage the information security risks associated with the ICT products and services supply chain.
Managing information security in the ICT (information and communication technology) supply chain refers to organisations’ measures to protect their sensitive or confidential information when working with ICT suppliers.
The ICT supply chain includes all of the entities involved in the production, distribution, and maintenance of ICT products and services. This can include manufacturers, distributors, resellers, service providers, and any subcontractors or sub-suppliers they may use.To manage information security in the ICT supply chain, organisations need to consider the risks associated with working with ICT suppliers and implement appropriate measures to mitigate those risks. This can include conducting due diligence on suppliers to ensure that they have appropriate security measures in place, establishing clear policies and procedures for handling and protecting sensitive or confidential information, and implementing technical measures such as encryption and access controls.Organisations should also regularly review and update their information security measures to ensure that they remain effective and meet the organisation's needs. Additionally, they should provide training and education to employees and suppliers on information security best practices to help ensure that all parties involved in the ICT supply chain understand their responsibilities and are able to protect the organisation's information effectively.
AvISO will be updating and reviewing all the information regularly, so keep us bookmarked and keep checking!
