A Major Industry Group Wants Biden To Focus on Supply-Chain Security

Washington Post, February 17, 2021

By Tonya Riley

BSA | The Software Alliance is urging the Biden administration and Congress to work together with the tech industry to create a way for information about supply-chain threats to be shared.

The group, whose members include Intel, Microsoft and Oracle, also wants the Biden administration not to strong-arm allies grappling with decisions about how to handle technology that could pose a national security risk. It criticized “overly blunt” Trump administration supply-chain policies, including a campaign to pressure allies to ban Huawei. The report said they were “challenging or impractical to implement, harmful and confusing to US industry, and all without ultimately advancing any real supply chain security."
