Huawei USA's Tim Danks to Lead Discussion on Understanding the State of Global Supply Chain Risk at The Virtual American Supply Chain 2020 Summit
Huawei Technologies USA's VP of Risk Management and Partner Relations Tim Danks will join The Virtual American Supply Chain 2020 Summit to give a keynote presentation. Hosted virtually on September 29-30, The Virtual American Supply Chain 2020 Summit is a leadership focused meeting for supply chain executives organized to improve supply chain and procurement strategy across the globe. Danks will join a cohort of supply chain and logistics leaders who will guide discussions around maximizing supply chain profitability and increasing visibility while mitigating risks. Speakers include, Cindy Mead, Chief Mission Assurance Directorate for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Chad Ducote, VP of Supply Chain for Walmart, Rachel Kutz, VP of Strategic Initiatives and Global Supply Chain for AT&T, and Paul Misener, VP of Global Innovation and Communication for Amazon, among others.
The keynote titled, "Building a Framework for Global Supply Chain Cybersecurity," will take place on Tuesday, September 29 at 11:05 a.m. ET. The discussion will focus on understanding the state of global supply chain risk in the era of trade wars, pervasive cyber threats and technology nationalism to better manage supply chain operations. The past year has seen drastic interruption to the global supply chain, resulting in a shift toward bringing manufacturing and jobs closer to home. As a result, we're experiencing a trend toward reshoring supply chains by companies around the globe. The supply chain interruption and the resulting loss of trust in companies' ability to provide goods presents an opportunity to build a new system to promote free trade while ensuring operation security. This session will encourage discussion around how to address ongoing issues in the manufacturing industry, while providing a reliable and robust supply chain for all.
