Cybersecurity and the New Space Race

The Space Economy is in hyper-growth. According to Morgan Stanley, “The revenue generated by the global space industry may increase to more than $1 trillion by 2040.”


As technological and cost barriers to space recede, and more countries and companies engage in satellite production, launch, exploration and spaceflight operators in the military, civilian and commercial domains can expect this trillion-dollar market to bring a host of new cybersecurity risks and challenges.


The complex supply chains supporting new space, if not properly secured, will provide exploitable vulnerabilities for adversaries seeking to compromise, destroy or disrupt space-based operations. When systems need repair here on Earth, a remediation team can access hardware directly. But the same is not true in space, where the fix becomes more difficult by an order of magnitude.


Join us for an informative panel discussion on cybersecurity risks and challenges to the new space economy, the potential threats, implications of failure, new and emerging defensive capabilities and how we must modify our security posture to ensure we do not import the cyber vulnerabilities of earth-based systems into space-based systems.
