CACI Organization Achieves ISO® 28000 Certification for Supply Chain Security
First U.S. Company to Obtain This International Credential
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today the achievement of the first accredited ISO 28000 certification in the United States ensuring supply chain security management. Combined with the company's ISO 27001 Information Security Management System certification, CACI now offers clients assured solutions for supply chain management that no other U.S. company can provide. These certifications strengthen CACI's positioning in its Logistics and Material Readiness and Cyber markets.
Supply chains provide goods and services, such as food and medicine, that impact every American. Without a comprehensive security framework in place, global supply chains are vulnerable to risks such as denial of service, counterfeiting, corrupted and stolen data, material theft, and delivery delays. Because they have become targets of mounting cyber and conventional attacks and many supply elements are now outsourced, safeguarding supply chains is central to national security.
The ISO 28000 certification demonstrates that CACI has developed a mature, end-to-end risk management program (including supply chain), with a focus on both quality and security in the management of information technology assets. CACI's Supply Chain Security Framework uses proven products and services that advance supply chain security, minimize disruption to client supply chains, and provide for rapid restoration after a catastrophic event. The ISO 27001 certification complements this by demonstrating that CACI has the ability to ensure that security controls are established across a wide range of business areas, such as continuity management, asset management, physical and network security, and standards for employees and external parties.
CACI is also a thought leader in supply chain security. As co-sponsor of the annual Asymmetric Threats symposia on national security issues, CACI supported the 2010 Asymmetric Threats symposium on challenges to the global supply chain and published the symposium proceedings, which can be found on www.asymmetric.net.
According to John Mengucci, CACI Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, "Because supply chains have become targets of mounting cyber, as well as conventional, attacks, protecting them is central to America's national security. CACI's certification in ISO 28000 offers our clients significant assurance that our supply chain solutions will provide the security needed to safeguard these missions."
CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury said, "CACI's distinction as the first U.S. company to earn ISO 28000 certification for supply chain security gives us an important differentiator in our high-growth Cyber and high-volume Logistics and Material Readiness markets. We believe our clients are seeking better supply chain security, and we are positioned to provide this enhanced support. CACI's unique qualifications deliver added value in countering today's threats."
CACI provides information solutions and services in support of national security missions and government transformation for Intelligence, Defense, and Federal Civilian clients. A member of the Fortune 1000 Largest Companies and the Russell 2000 Index, CACI provides dynamic careers for approximately 15,500 employees working in over 120 offices worldwide. Visit www.caci.com.
