In 2013, National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) awarded the SCMC $200,000 for research and development of enterprise tools & technologies for managing risk in the cyber supply chain.
Utilizing multi-year funding from NIST, SCMC successfully built a Cyber Risk Management Portal with the following features:
- Enterprise Risk Assessment Tool based on the President's Executive Cyber Security Framework
- Supply Chain Assessment Tool, based on latest NIST guidelines and practices, that evaluates your organization's strategic control over its end-to-end IT supply chain.
- Mapping Tool to determine the vulnerability of key hubs and nodes in your IT supply chain
- Insurance Risk Analysis Tool, enables your publically-traded organization to benchmark itself against a database of cyber security breaches by industry
- Easy-to-use Executive Dashboard to display and access assessment results
- News feeds and alerts relative to cyber security
The Portal can be accessed at: http://cyberchain.rhsmith.umd.edu.
The SCMC currently is constructing an econometric model for the Director of the Department of Defense’s Manufacturing & Industrial Base Policy.
This study is draws on the following data sets concerning the benchmarking firm: APQC’s supply chain operations reference metrics (SCOR) database; Bloomberg’s SPLC Database; and SEC 10k and Quarterly Filings for both financial and supply chain performance variables.
- Quantify the impact that supply chain performance metrics have on a firm’s financial performance
- Quantify the impact that supply chain structure variables have on a firm’s financial performance
