Bill targets supply chain security training.


The Supply Chain Security Training Act creates a standardized training program to help federal employees responsible for purchasing services and equipment identify whether those products could compromise the federal government’s information security.

 Federal employees need to know how to recognize possible threats when they are purchasing software and equipment that could allow bad actors a back door into government information systems.

Under the bill, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) would develop guidance for federal agencies to adopt and use the training program, in addition to determining the process for selecting officials to participate in the training.
