The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) is hosting a meeting on 1/26 (two sessions) described below, chaired by Dr. Allan Friedman, NTIA's SBOM program manager:

This will be a background discussion for those who are relatively new to SBOM, focusing on Energy sector use cases.

The goal of this info session is to make the case for transparency in the software supply chain, as well as to give an initial overview of the global SBOM work to date. We'll also highlight lessons from how the healthcare sector has come together to learn about and execute SBOM technical and operational details. Participants will emerge prepared to think about how this might impact the electric and energy sector and begin discussions around what a proof-of-concept exercise might look like. These discussions will continue over the coming weeks in greater detail.

 There will be two similar info sessions on January 26 to accommodate schedules. Connection information is below. Feel free to forward. For more information, please contact Allan Friedman: If you’d like to be added to the list for further information, please let me know.

 January 26, 9-10am ET
