Get Better Cybersecurity With Less Cost By Leveraging DevSecOps
Watch the Webinar
Risk comes in many forms. When designing, building, and maintaining complex systems such as satellites there are many opportunities for risk that you need to consider, and some conflict with each other. For example: Risk of a security breach vs risk of performance impact by implementing security protocols. Or, the risk of incurring cost to implement security vs the cost risk (financial and reputational) of a breach. It isn’t an easy path to navigate.
In this webinar we will give you 5 ways you can mitigate risk that will result in more secure satellite systems while keeping your cost under control.
