Jon Boyens of NIST will provide answers during MSSP Alert Live 2022 (join us September 19-21, Washington, D.C.). Boyens is deputy chief of the computer security division, within the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Take a closer look, and you'll see that Boyens:

  • Leads NIST’s Cybersecurity Supply Chain Risk Management Program;
  • co-leads the Software and Supply Chain Assurance Forum; and
  • is the NIST principal to the Federal Acquisition Security Council.

Boyens has worked on various White House-led initiatives, including those on trusted identities, federal supply chain, ICT supply chain, the Cybersecurity Framework and, more recently, implementation of EO 14028, Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity.

Software Supply Chain Security: Hear Expert Guidance

Roll all that together, and Boyens is uniquely qualified to describe the state of software supply chain security -- and the steps that service providers and their software partners can take to harden systems from cyberattacks.

Join us for Boyens' presentation at MSSP Alert Live 2022 in September. And if you have questions for Boyens that you’d like raised during the conference, please email MSSP Alert Editorial Director Joe Panettieri.
