Look out for a Survivability News Publishers Corner Podcast dedicated to this announcement to address whether it is a Presidential Election Spin or if it is of any serious and/or real substance?
The Center will be under US Homeland Security (DHS) “to ensure the resilience of supply chains for critical infrastructure needed to deliver essential services to the American people”.
The Center’s near-term priorities will include addressing supply chain risks resulting from threats and vulnerabilities inside U.S. ports. Additionally, in 2024, in collaboration with other federal agencies and foreign governments, DHS will facilitate at least two tabletop exercises designed to test the resilience of critical cross-border supply chains. Further, DHS and the Department of Commerce will collaborate to continue to strengthen the semiconductor supply chain and further the implementation of the CHIPS and Science Act.
