Webinar on Applying Risk Intelligence for Supply Chain Visibility, Compliance

Supply Chain Risk Exposure Evaluation Network (SCREEN) explained, June 29, 1 p.m. EDT

Published: Thursday, June 23, 2011 - 11:45

(BSI: Reston, VA) -- Join BSI to learn strategies for applying real-time risk intelligence to improve supply chain visibility and enhance compliance. The Supply Chain Risk Exposure Evaluation Network (SCREEN) from BSI is a web-based tool for supply chain security intelligence and you can learn all about it in a free webinar, “Applied intelligence: how to integrate SCREEN into your business,” on Wednesday, June 29, 2011, at 1 p.m. EDT. Register online.

In March 2010, the U.S. Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program released guidance on conducting risk-based supplier and supply chain risk assessments. The program, known as the 5-step risk assessment process quotes 28 different intelligence sources that can be used as the basis of incorporating risk into supplier assessments.

Launched in April 2011, BSI’s SCREEN provides real-time threat levels, intelligence, and analysis on anti-Western terrorism in all 212 countries, as well as individual supply chain threat levels and profile reports on more than 250 active terrorist groups around the world. BSI assesses the level of business and supply chain risk posed by terrorist groups (classified as anti-Western) with ideologies that target Western interests and commerce operating in these countries.

SCREEN offers the most complete, publicly available, supply chain security intelligence data and analysis source. SCREEN data sets include unique, proprietary risk data, along with BSI-generated analysis related to global supply chain security risk exposure as well as trade and compliance information.
