Securing the supply chain. Conway oversees the security of Cisco’s global supply chain of more than 75,000 partners — and partnership is one of her defining qualities. In 2016, she collaborated with U.S. military services, intelligence and energy agencies, and the General Services Administration on a rigorous approach to security and resilience across the government’s supply chain and its commercial IT suppliers. Conway’s contributions and insight helped shape regulations, guidance and standards for value chain security.
