Many industries critical to national security depend on supply chains that today are highly interconnected and global in reach. Attacks and other disruptions to these supply chains can have serious downstream consequences to our economy, infrastructure, and military capabilities. The U.S. government will need to find and implement new tools to identify, monitor, and neutralize threats to the supply chain and will need to eliminate or mitigate the effects of supply chain vulnerabilities.

The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies invites you to attend the third installment in its Global Supply Chain Security Series on September 19th, 2018. This seminar will featuring speakers from a number of critical national infrastructures and industries, including the pharmaceutical, space, and automotive industries as well as the energy sector.
