CyberSat summit launching west coast event in 2020 focused on the cybersecurity of small satellites

CyberSat summit launching west coast event in 2020 focused on the cybersecurity of small satellites and emerging technologies

For the past three years, CyberSat has been the leading satellite security event bringing together the government, satellite, aerospace, and cyber industries. Building on the success of the east coast event, and in response to the growing need to have constant, highly focused conversations about cyber security, CyberSat will be hosting two satellite security events in 2020 – CyberSatCom, focused on cybersecurity threats to small satellites and emerging technologies, and CyberSatGov, dedicated to serve the government and military market.

CyberSatCom will take place May 13 – 15 at the Hyatt Regency LAX in Los Angeles and takes a laser-focused view on cyber threats and security of the growing small satellite and LEO markets. As new constellations come online, cyber criminals are increasingly setting their sights on satellites with the intent to disrupt mission critical communications and affect large groups of people. The need for CyberSatCom and the environment to foster these cyber security discussions becomes even more important than ever.

“We are very excited to expand CyberSat to the west coast,” said Mark Holmes, Chair of both CyberSat events and Editorial Director of Via Satellite. “CyberSatCom in Los Angeles in May and CyberSatGov in Reston, VA in October will create the comprehensive environment our audience has been asking for to discuss a range of cyber threats to satellite technology. This community has trusted us for three years to put together a program and networking event they can’t get anywhere else, and we’re ready to take our expertise to the west coast. "

Topics to be discussed at CyberSatCom:

  • 5G and Space: Two Worlds Collide

  • Academia: Project Future Space

  • Commercial VS Government: Who Leads the Way?

  • How NewSpace Companies are Protecting SmallSat Investments

  • NewSpace Viewpoint on Cybersecurity and Space
