IT Equipment Supply Chain Risks Are a Growing Threat; Tina Kuhn Quoted

Christina Kuhn, CEO and President of CyberCore Technologies

Tina Kuhn, president and chief executive officer of CyberCore Technologies, spoke about the significant vulnerabilities of IT equipment during the recent AFCEA TechNet Cyber conference. 

As a participant on the Senior Cyber Warriors Address Setting Cybersecurity Priorities panel, Kuhn warned that we’re amidst a cyber war and nation-state resources are focusing on IT equipment supply chain breaches in manufacturing, distribution and transportation. 

“Companies and governments need to understand the influences affecting IT equipment they purchase from the manufacturers, through transportation and distribution. Using dark web and open source data, CyberCore provides a comprehensive risk analysis of companies and products,” Kuhn argued.
