Access Partnership’s Coalition for Cybersecurity in Asia-Pacific (CCAPAC) has published a new report on Critical Information Infrastructure and Supply Chain Security, providing policy recommendations for supply chain resilience in the wake of global events that have severely disrupted critical supply chains.
Concerns regarding supply chain risks have intensified among policymakers in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) as the global integration of supply chains has created new efficiencies but also introduced higher levels of third-party risks. The disruption of these critical supply chains has negative effects not only on the economy but society as well and can be particularly significant for managing critical information infrastructure.
CCAPAC launched its latest report to assist policymakers in creating effective policies for supply chain resilience. The report reviews the key principles behind supply chain risk management (SCRM), key country approaches towards critical information infrastructure and SCRM, and identifies four key commonalities in APAC regulatory approaches.
The report highlights four key recommendations to enhance the security of supply chains in the APAC markets for critical information infrastructure. These recommendations encompass:
- Fostering resilience through public-private collaboration
- Encouraging innovation and experimentation
- Taking a comprehensive approach to strengthen infrastructure resilience
- Promoting regional cooperation and joint capacity building
CCAPAC is a group of dedicated industry stakeholders who are working to positively shape the cybersecurity environment in Asia through policy analysis, engagement, and capacity building. The coalition comprises of Amazon Web Services, Becton Dickinson, Cisco Systems, MasterCard, and Qualcomm. Access Partnership is the secretariat for CCAPAC.
