The keynote titled, "Building a Framework for Global Supply Chain Cybersecurity," will take place on Tuesday, September 29 at 11:05 a.m. ET. The discussion will focus on understanding the state of global supply chain risk in the era of trade wars, pervasive cyber threats and technology nationalism to better manage supply chain operations. The past year has seen drastic interruption to the global supply chain, resulting in a shift toward bringing manufacturing and jobs closer to home. As a result, we're experiencing a trend toward reshoring supply chains by companies around the globe. The supply chain interruption and the resulting loss of trust in companies' ability to provide goods presents an opportunity to build a new system to promote free trade while ensuring operation security. This session will encourage discussion around how to address ongoing issues in the manufacturing industry, while providing a reliable and robust supply chain for all.
