Diversification Suggestion for LifeLock: Supply Chain Certification

ZDNet headline  (see the whole article here): "Chinese hacking group backdoors products from three Asian gaming companies." Given the Huawei, Lenovo et al suspicion about back door security generally, it occurs to me that LifeLock might have a bonanza new business direction in certifying software and hardware supply chains. Hey, their $1 million insurance policy to their identity theft customers makes sense. They're putting their money where their mouth is. Why not let them have at the supply chain of every company from Microsoft to Apple to Oracle to SAP, etc.? To hell with gaming companies. I'd give preference to technology from a company with a certified supply chain any time.
