    The FCC Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council (CSRIC) WG4: What We Can Learn

    The CSRIC IV Working Group 4 (WG4) was given the task of developing voluntary mechanisms that give the FCC and the public assurances that communication providers are taking the necessary measures to manage cybersecurity risks across the enterprise. The WG produced a definitive report that analyzed and gave recommendations for the top five mission critical segments of our communications infrastructure including satellite, broadcast, cable, wireless and wireline segments. What can we learn from this and what is the common cybersecurity framework that spans all five of these segments?

    Connected Transportation & Security: Keeping Connected Vehicles Safe

    In 2015, there were around 5,000 aircraft connected. By 2025, that number could triple as most of the world’s major airlines connect their fleets. Ant this is just one vertical. The ‘Connected’ Car will start to become part of our reality very soon as it enters the mainstream. Likewise, cruise ship companies are like mini-cities with thousands of people connected. However, cyber-security will be a huge issue for all these forms of ‘connected’. We talk to key players about the relationship between the satellite sector and the connected transportation sector and how we can keep connected transportation a vertical free from major hacks.

    The NIST Framework: The Need For It and Where It Can Be Improved

    In 2014, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released a Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. The aim was to provide a structure that organizations, regulators and customers can use to create, guide, assess or improve comprehensive cybersecurity programs. Almost three years later, we look at the success of NIST, and where it goes next.

    Military SATCOM and Cybersecurity: The New Paradigm

    The U.S. government is the world’s largest buyers of satellite capacity. It has its own dedicated satellites, as well buying a great deal of commercial satellite capacity. One of its concerns when buying capacity off commercial satellites, is the security involved? However, with demands for bandwidth going up, we look at the cybersecurity issues here, as the U.S. DoD and government looks to invest in more satellite capacity. With more HTS going up, and the landscape becoming more complex, we examine how this new paradigm and whether the industry is well-equipped to deal with these new threats.
