Why Attend CyberSat?

CyberSat has been at the forefront of the satellite industry’s burgeoning cybersecurity landscape since the event’s launch in 2017, successfully uniting satellite, space, and cybersecurity experts with government officials for insight into, and action against, the latest threats in both Classified and Unclassified programs.

In response to the exponential growth in the collection, transmission and consumption of space data, along with the mainstream adoption of AI/ML, we are expanding CyberSat 2024 to feature two concurrent tracks – one track continuing CyberSat’s legacy of addressing Space Infrastructure, and a new technical track focusing on Space Data & Technology. Conference keynotes and general sessions will address all attendees.

Track 1: Space Infrastructure

Continuing CyberSat’s legacy focus on the satellite communications ecosystem and space architecture, this track explores topics ranging from safeguarding satellites in orbit to securing ground control stations and the networks. Addressing the broader landscape of space systems and their cyber resilience, attendees will take part in discussions on policy and standards, emerging cyber threats, and how to build in resiliency among other key strategic topics. 

Track 2: Space Data & Technology

Delving deep into the intricacies of securing space data and leveraging cutting-edge technologies, this track will offer concrete, actionable takeaways focused on ensuring the integrity and reliability of data within the space ecosystem. Engineers, data-focused professionals and those involved on the front lines of cybersecurity will experience technical in-depth sessions covering data security, AI, quantum computing, cloud and other emerging technologies. 

Classified & Unclassified Programming to Keep You Ahead of the Threat

As cyber threats continue to evolve, gain actionable intelligence to protect your critical infrastructure and secure the integrity of your data. Past speakers have represented the U.S. Space Force, National Reconnaissance Office, Space Systems Command, Space Development Agency, Sandia National Laboratories, National Space Intelligence Center, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Space Dynamics Laboratory, Viasat, and more!

Unclassified Program, November 18-19

Attend the only satellite security event that successfully unites satellite, space, and cybersecurity experts with government officials for critical discussions and in-depth insight into the latest cyber threats.

Your adversaries will never stop trying to find and exploit stress points and vulnerabilities, which will cause disruption and possible destruction of your systems and processes – you need to plan and prepare your organization against such threats.

Classified Program, November 19-20
(Half day Nov. 19 & Full day Nov. 20)

The DoD, intelligence community, and space and satellite industry leaders will discuss advancements and challenges in assuring space system missions throughout the ever-increasingly cyber-contested lifecycle.

Nowhere else will you find more government, military and industry participants working to identify threat vectors 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.
