Agenda

Our Advisory Board, comprised of leading cybersecurity experts, has worked diligently to develop programming for both a classified and unclassified setting that focuses on vulnerable aspects of the satellite ecosystem and features content and speakers that can help you formulate solutions to protect your assets.

CLASSIFIED DAY

Tuesday, November 1 (Separate ticket required)

The Classified Program sets this event apart– nowhere else will you find more government and military participants working to identify threat vectors and and formulate solutions to thwart next-generation attacks. Speakers will share TS-SCI level presentations on how to build resiliency and ensure safety within the space ecosystem.

Please note: TS/SCI Clearance is required to attend CyberLEO’s Classified Day.

Attendees will learn about:

  • Securing the digital battlefield
  • Evaluation for supply chain management
  • Current adversary threat intelligence
  • Securing critical space infrastructure
  • Cyber experimentation

UNCLASSIFIED PROGRAM

CyberSatGov is the only satellite security event in the world that successfully fuses satellite, space, cyber, and government to educate on threat vectors and deliver solutions to thwart next-generation attacks. We’re bringing the satellite community together with the government and military markets to have a comprehensive discussion about cybersecurity.

Thursday, May 12

9:00 am - 9:30 am
9:30 am - 10:15 am
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. This panel of experts will explore what needs to be done to keep tens of thousands of satellites, and the future of LEO, secure.
ModeratorBrad Grady, Principal Analyst, NSR
SpeakerPhil Mar, CTO, Network System Group, Viasat
10:15 am - 10:45 am
10:45 am - 11:30 am
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?
ModeratorMr. Vince Walisko, Senior Vice President, Engineering & Operations, Eutelsat Americas
SpeakerAlex Kaczmarek, Executive Director, Network Infrastructure, Iridium
SpeakerLora Randolf, Principal Program Manager, Microsoft
11:35 am - 12:20 pm
Security in a 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
2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
2:30 pm - 3:15 pm
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.
SpeakerGreg Falco, Postdoctoral Scholar and Lecturer, Stanford University
3:15 pm - 3:45 pm
3:45 pm - 4:30 pm
There are numerous incidents of major data leaks and attacks that 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
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Friday, May 13

9:00 am - 9:30 am
9:30 am - 10:30 am
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
11:00 am - 11:45 am
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 number of satellites. During this panel, we will talk about sustainability and how it could impact the security of satellite networks.
11:45 am - 1:15 pm
1:15 pm - 1:45 pm
1:45 pm - 2:30 pm
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
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?
