September 25, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Most of us understand the damage caused by cyberattacks on Earth. In space, the consequences of cyberattacks are much more dire. They can sabotage years of economic activity, threaten national security and the lives of astronauts and in-space personnel, and spark uncontrollable military action in an already dangerous environment. In this episode, we’ll learn about how modern approaches to cyber and national security change when dealing with complex in-space infrastructure, and protecting human activity in space. In part 1 of this discussion, we talked about the legal framework and policies needed to protect the Future Space Economy. Part 2 focuses on the software, tools, and technological solutions needed to protect space networks.
