Jon Boyens, National Institute of Standards and Technology

It is not just a question of fake parts. Genuine ones that have been tampered with, or are just poorly made, can cause damage. The National Institute of Standards and Technology is revising guidelines for agencies to help them secure their supply chains. Jon Boyens is an IT specialist in the security outreach and integration group at NIST. He spoke with Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive.
