Securing Space – The new final frontier for Cyber Security

In the last few decades, Space and Cyber have been recognised as the two new domains of warfighting. The interactions between the traditional Air, Land, Sea domains with Space and Cyber have been explored thoroughly. But how do Space and Cyber integrate? What role does Cyber Security play in ensuring the projection of Space capability? In this talk we will explore cyber security’s role in the projection of Space capability whilst looking at how edge compute will bring new Cyber Security risks to space based assets.
