The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) this month announced its support for the rollout of the Biden Administration’s National Cybersecurity Strategy.

In a March 2 press release, David Stehlin, CEO of TIA, remarked:

“TIA supports the goals laid out by the Administration for securing our critical digital infrastructure. We appreciate the report’s recognition that robust collaboration, particularly between the public and private sectors, is essential to securing cyberspace.”

As a preeminent U.S.-based standards development organization (SDO), early in 2022, TIA proactively released SCS 9001, the first cyber and supply chain security standard for the information communications technology (ICT) sector.

Stehlin explained:

“SCS 9001 is a process-based standard and available to any organization seeking to improve their ICT supply chain and cybersecurity business performance, SCS 9001 is an independently verifiable and certifiable standard that promotes security and recognizes it must be built into products and not bolted on, which is consistent with the objective of the ‘secure- and resilient-by-design’ principles laid out in the National Cybersecurity Report.”

TIA notes standard can be applied to any type of network or connected technology, spanning from IoT devices to critical infrastructure networks.

Quoting the government's plan, Stehlin concluded:

“SCS 9001 is in total alignment with the Administration’s goals to ‘secure emerging technologies, enable interoperability, foster global market competition, and protect our national security and economic advantage.’ We look forward to working with the Administration through its support of non-government SDO’s and ‘long-term, strategic collaboration between public and private sectors at home and abroad' to help address these challenges."
