Agenda

Welcome to CyberSat 2024, where we’re amplifying our commitment to staying at the forefront of the rapidly evolving landscape of cybersecurity in space. Our program is undergoing dynamic expansion with the introduction of two concurrent tracks: one dedicated to our longstanding focus on Space Infrastructure, and a brand-new technical track centered around Space Data and Technology. As we navigate these exciting changes, please note that session details and schedules may be subject to change to ensure we deliver the most relevant and impactful content.

Returning with an extended 1.5-day format, CyberSat’s Classified Program offers government and industry a secure forum for important space cybersecurity discussions. We’re also excited to introduce the Space ISAC Crisis Simulation Tabletop Exercise, a limited attendance event designed to enhance the incident response skills of the global space community.

Join cybersecurity experts, satellite service providers, industry leaders, innovators and engineers, federal intelligence agencies, and the DoD for three interactive days of discussions, workshops, and disruptive technologies in both Classified and Unclassified settings.

Classified Program attendees should arrange travel to The Aerospace Corporation in Chantilly, VA.
2:30 PM – 7:00 PM | Classified Program Sessions & Evening Reception at The Aerospace Corporation

Following Tuesday’s events, CyberSat’s Classified Sessions will continue on Wednesday, November 20, from 8:30 AM – 5:15 PM.

A separate ticket is required for the Classified Program. Attendees must hold an active TS/SCI clearance and all participants must receive confirmation of successful processing of their Visit Authorization Request (VAR).

Join us on Tuesday, November 19, from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM for Space ISAC’s Crisis Simulation Tabletop Exercise. This limited attendance event, facilitated by the Space ISAC, provides an opportunity to navigate through a simulated space-based crisis scenario. The objective of this exercise is to provide participants with an experience in incident response while managing the geopolitical dynamics, increased economic investment and growth interest, and cyber and physical threats to space systems.

About Space ISAC – Collaborating to Protect Our Space Assets

The Space ISAC serves to facilitate collaboration across the global space industry to enhance our ability to prepare for and respond to vulnerabilities, incidents, and threats; to disseminate timely and actionable information among member entities; and to serve as the primary communications channel for the sector with respect to this information.

Space ISAC is the only all-threats security information source for the public and private space sector. It will be the most comprehensive, single point source for data, facts and analysis on space security and threats to space assets. Space ISAC will also provide analysis and resources to support response, mitigation and resilience initiatives.
