A National Strategy for a Secure Microelectronics
Supply Chain



Microelectronics are key components in our defense systems, and assuring that they are both trusted and secure is critical for US national security. In today’s global electronics supply chain, hardware and software vulnerabilities are increasingly prevalent, and a whole-of-government solution is needed to ensure a long-term domestic capability. A solution must exist at every stage of the supply chain to include research and design; production; supply, stock, and store; and deployment.

The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies and Venable LLP, invite you to attend a luncheon seminar on a “National Strategy for a Secure Microelectronics Supply Chain.” The seminar will feature leading experts in cybersecurity, and provide recommendations on a path forward.

Jamie Barnett, Rear Admiral (Ret.)
Partner, Telecommunications Group Chair, Venable LLP
