The SCS 9001 is a Supply Chain Security Management System. Security here refers to both Information Security and Product Security. In other words, the security of the IT Assets in the organization and the security of the products designed and manufactured. When the SCS 9001 standard references “security” it is referring to “Supply Chain Security.” This means the SCS 9001 standard is a supply chain standard for the Telecommunications Industry as a whole.

The SCS 9001 security standard is similar to the efforts of the German Automakers who adopted TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) for the supply chain of the German OEMs such as Volkswagen, Audi, and Daimler. It is also similar to the CMMC standards adopted by the Department of Defense (DoD) which are based on NIST standards for cybersecurity controls. Other industries are sure to follow suit due to large risks to both organizations and products posed by both internal and external actors with malicious intent
