Agenda

Our mission is to bring you discussions, updates, briefings, and lessons learned stemming from real-world experiences that will make a positive impact on your cybersecurity strategy. That’s why we work closely with our Advisory Board to build a program that you can feel confident in. With multiple constellations being launched, we could see tens of thousands of satellites entering LEO. CyberLEO will become the epicenter of discussion surrounding security issues in a LEO world.

Unclassified Program

Thursday, May 12

9:00 AM – 9:30 AM PT | OPENING KEYNOTE

09:30 AM – 10:15 AM PT | THE LEO REVOLUTION IS HERE: CAN IT BE SECURED?

The satellite world is undergoing a revolution. New space players, like Starlink and Amazon, are placing huge bets in state-of-the-art LEO constellations. Traditional operators are also getting in the game, such as Telesat with Lightspeed and Eutelsat making significant investments in OneWeb. However, with the onset of these constellations, security considerations must be discussed. A panel of experts will explore what needs to be done to keep tens of thousands of satellites, and the future of LEO, secure.

10:15 AM – 10:45 AM PT | TEA/COFFEE BREAK

10:45 AM – 11:30 AM PT | OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE FOR LEO: THE WAY FORWARD?

The satellite industry has entered into a more software centric world as software defined satellites become the norm. As satellites look to connect to the cloud, software will play an increasingly important role in the management and control of these global networks. With the increasing amount and complexity of software, and in particular with the increase in the use of open-source software, the security threat landscape is changing. What does this software movement mean from a security perspective, and can it provide the mix of security and efficiency the industry demands?

11:35 AM – 12:20 PM PT | NETWORK SEGMENTATION: THE NEXT BIG ISSUE FOR SATELLITE NETWORKS

Security in multi-layered network is complex. Network segmentation principles can help to isolate and intermittently access sensitive command and control networks and other operational portions of a network. Should satellite players, particularly in LEO, adopt such an approach, to keep their networks secure? How can engineers and security professionals better collaborate to enable robust, reliable network segmentation standards?

12:20 PM – 2:00 PM PT | LUNCH AND KEYNOTE

2:00 PM – 2:30 PM PT | DESSERT BREAK

2:30 PM – 3:15 PM PT | RANSOMWARE MITIGATION RESPONSE: PREPARING FOR THE WORST

We often talk of a LEO revolution in satellite, but another revolution is also taking place, one that could wreak havoc on satellite constellations. The ransomware industry has seen strong growth over the last year, with payments set to reach record levels. How do satellite companies deal with such a scenario? Can you prepare for it? What if you lost access to a ground station or even lost access to a satellite? You’ll walk away from this panel with tactical approaches to mitigation response in the event of a ransomware attack.

3:15 PM – 3:45 PM PT | TEA/COFFEE BREAK

3:45 PM – 4:30 PM PT | TWITCH DATA HACK: LESSONS LEARNED

There are numerous incidents of major data leaks and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. One of the latest and most high profile involved Twitch. Could what happened to Twitch happen to a major satellite company? What lessons can satellite companies learn from other industries?

4:30 PM – 5:00 PM PT | CLOSING KEYNOTE

5:00 PM – 7:00 PM PT | NETWORKING RECEPTION

Friday, May 13

9:00 AM – 9:30 AM PT | OPENING KEYNOTE

9:30 AM – 10:30 AM PT | SPACE ISAC: THREAT HUNTING AND WHERE TO LOOK

In this special one hour session, Space ISAC will lead a discussion looking at the latest threats and brief the audience on up-to-date intel and data, including hands-on advice for the satellite community.

10:30 AM – 11:00 AM PT | TEA/COFFEE BREAK

11:00 AM – 11:45 AM PT | SUSTAINABILITY: THE NEXT BIG REVOLUTION IN SPACE

The mantra in most industries is having a more sustainable approach. This is incredibly relevant to the satellite industry, as the LEO revolution means we are going to see a huge increase in the numbers of satellites. During this panel, we will talk sustainability and how it could impact the security of satellite networks.

11:45 AM – 1:15 PM PT | LUNCH AND KEYNOTE

1:15 PM – 1:45 PM PT | DESSERT BREAK

1:45 PM – 2:30 PM PT | END-TO-END PRODUCT SECURITY: REALIZING THE DREAM

This is a boom time in the satellite industry with big and small players unfolding ambitious plans in the ecosystem. The opportunities, yet demands, on technology vendors have never been greater. What is the market opportunity, and how are they building security into their technology? We’ll also examine the age old question of open versus proprietary systems in satellite, as well as how the industry can build end-to-end product security.

2:35 PM – 3:20 PM PT | SUPPLY CHAIN 2022: CLOSING DISCUSSION

It is clear there will be continual disruptions in the supply chain, even as we head into a year that will be more “normal” than the last. Supply chain issues have beset many companies, including those in the satellite sector. Where are we in terms of supply chain and how can companies address vulnerabilities in the supply chain?
