To this end, IPC created the ought Leaders Program (TLP), a select group of ex- perts who will generate ideas and insights in five areas: • Education and workforce • Technology and innovation • e economy • Key markets • Environment, health, and safety ese experts will assist IPC on key issues, offering valuable insights to IPC members and key external stakeholders. e knowl- edge gained from ought Leaders will al- low IPC to be aware of a range of change drivers and how they are interconnected. IPC will leverage these experts' insights to lead and influence change that will benefit members and the larger worldwide electron- ics industry. e ought Leaders' responsibilities will include providing publishable material in their subject areas, flagging opportunities for IPC engagement, and participating in quar- terly roundtable discussions. Each expert is expected to fulfill at least one 12-month term, during which quarterly contributions will be expected. One of the program's first projects will be a report on the U.S. Defense Department's Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), an ambitious effort to better pro- tect the cybersecurity of the defense industri- al base. e electronics industry supports this initiative but has concerns about its ongoing implementation.
