CyberSatDigital (May 10-12, Virtual)


Through a combination of digital and in-person experiences, CyberSat events provide a unique and powerful opportunity for the cybersecurity community to better understand the most pressing threat vectors with the intent to prevent cyberattacks.

Taking place online May 10 – 12, CyberSatDigital began the all-important conversation on how to identify bad actors, neutralize risks, and thwart threats on our assets in the satellite ecosystem.

The Aerospace Corporation served as event co-sponsor, contributed to multiple panels and hosted the CyberSatDigital classified day of programming.

Space ISAC’s Role in Security to the Global Space Sector

It’s essential to signal to our adversaries and competitors, and to cybercriminals that they cannot put space systems at risk successfully and that the security and resilience of these systems can be assured under all circumstances. The Mission of Space ISAC is to facilitate collaboration across the global space industry to enhance our ability to prepare for and respond to vulnerabilities, incidents, and threats facing our space systems and the critical infrastructure they comprise. The panel will discuss the technical, policy, and implementation challenges of protecting that infrastructure and the policy decisions, such as designating these systems as a sector of the nation’s critical infrastructure.

  • Moderator: Erin MillerExecutive Director, Space ISAC
  • Speakers: 
    • Ed Devinney, Corporate Director for Cyber Programs, Northrop Grumman
    • Edward SwallowSVP, Civil Systems Group, Aerospace
    • Samuel Sanders VisnerTechnical Fellow, Mitre

Quality Leadership Forum 2021 (Apr. 22, 2021 – NASA)

Digital Transformation (DT) is enabling every occupation and industry to use data and develop models to drive situational understanding and make informed decisions. NASA recognizes the criticality and necessity of digitizing data, using analytics to understand its processes and results, and the
enormous value that can be realized by data reuse and modeling. Discussion sessions will explore DT topics with near term relevance to QA.

When the Chips are Down: Navigating Strengths and Strategic Vulnerabilities in the Semiconductor Industry (Mar. 10, 2021 – Wilson Center)

Join the Wilson Center’s Science and Technology Innovation Program and the University of California’s Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society & the Banatao Institute (CITRIS) for a closer look at the market dynamics and national security concerns associated with the semiconductor industry.

Increasingly, semiconductors have been recognized for their unique role as a key component for promoting economic growth and scientific advancement as well as ensuring national security. Given recent shifts in the global semiconductor industry and the use-cases it supports as well as growing geostrategic competition between the U.S. and China, the U.S. faces increasing pressure to locate timely and effective policy solutions. What global market dynamics and security concerns must be addressed, and how? Our ability to effectively answer this pressing question relies on a nuanced understanding of the market and security dynamics at play in the semiconductor industry at home and abroad.  Join us for this two and a half hour event where we will examine both the evolving global market and national security concerns in depth with leading experts in the field.
