INSA Advisor Jill Singer Sounds Alarm on Source Code Inspections

INSA Board of Advisors member Jill Singer called for U.S. government and industry to develop a response to the introduction of "source code inspections," predominantly in Russia and China, in an op-ed published today on The Cipher Brief. Source code inspections put U.S. companies at risk of intellectual property theft and undermine the cybersecurity of organizations that use products containing the inspected code, says Ms. Singer, vice president of AT&T's national security sector and a former chief information officer of the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).

"The United States needs a coherent overall strategy to respond to this situation: one that brings U.S. trade and economic policy in the [Information & Communication Technology] market together with the technology providers and innovators in the U.S. private sector," she writes in "Steals the Deal: Source Code Inspections Herald New Risks for Tech Vendors."
