CyberSat Digital Week

June 8-12, 2020
Starting at 11:00 AM ET Every Day

As more people shift to working remotely, more data and communications are being sent digitally, creating a “new normal” that is not only an adjustment for everyone but also creates an environment more vulnerable to cybercriminals… making cybersecurity more paramount than ever.

CyberSat Week – a digital platform and event dedicated to cybersecurity – is your one-stop portal for information on cybersecurity!  Each day at 11:00 AM ET, you’ll experience a live broadcast of cybersecurity experts discussing the threat landscape and covering important topics in the cybersecurity industry.  In addition to the live broadcasts, you’ll have access to other cybersecurity resources (white papers, articles, case studies, interviews), the on-demand viewing of the live sessions and the opportunity to connect with other attendees…all in a digital format!  Plus, you’ll have access to the portal beyond CyberSat Week, allowing you to refer back to the materials and videos any time!

June 8

11:00 AM – 11:20 AM // Opening Keynote: Software Bill of Materials – Transparency in the Software Supply Chain
The software that the entire world depends on has emerged as a primary risk in the supply chain, whether from active attempts to compromise key components, or ordinary vulnerabilities buried deep in our systems. Addressing software supply chain risk will require more transparency across the ecosystem, through the adoption of a “software bill of materials” (SBOM). This presentation will offer a brief overview of the concept of an SBOM, and the progress being made by an open, cross-sector, and international initiative convened by NTIA in the US Department of Commerce. We will review lessons learned, remaining challenges, and expected progress. We will also touch on the path to adoption, including market forces and the ongoing role of governments and regulators.

Keynote Speaker:

  • Dr. Allan Friedman, Director of Cybersecurity Initiatives, National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)

11:30 AM – 12:15 PM // Software Defined Satellites: The Revolution is Now, and so is the Threat
Satellites are constantly changing. More software than ever before is being used as satellites need to be more flexible to adjust to market needs. Satellite innovation is fueling a revolution, and the technology is making an impact on the world, but increased software means increased potential for an attack.  How do we continue to drive positive impact through software defined satellite and maintain security?

You may not know the ins and outs of cyber threats, but you do know that any attack on your business could have catastrophic results. In this session, we explore the cyber threats specifically related to business leaders in identifying the types of threat actors, their actions and motivations and the impact of a breach on business operations. We will also take a look at the Cyber Risk Mitigation programs companies are investing in, so leaders can shape their company’s overall strategy to deal with the cyber threat.

12:00 PM – 12:45 PM // A Holistic Threat Modeling Approach to your Cyberspace Operational Environment
Threat modeling your cyberspace operational environment enhances the decision maker’s ability to conceptualize, integrate and synchronize defensive operations from tactical to strategic. We will take you through a strategy that takes you from the abstract to the granular in order to ensure executives and defenders at various levels derive continuous value to co-create a hardened, dynamic, and intelligence-driven security posture.

June 11

11:00 AM – 11:45 AM // NewSpace Influencers Discuss Cyber
“NewSpace” doesn’t mean immune to “old” problems.  In fact, many argue that startups are more susceptible to cyber attacks and not as in-tune with how to stop a threat before it becomes a full-blown attack.  NewSpace influencers gather to share their approach to cybersecurity.
