A Different Approach to Designing Multi-Level Satellite Cybersecurity Defenses

Mon. March 12| 10:15 AM - 10:35 AM | 201

Space systems have become a target of choice for hackers. As valued partners on civil and military space programs worldwide, Thales Alenia Space and Thales have identified priorities for the future and drawn up a cybersecurity roadmap for the Group's space products and solutions. This presentation from Thales Alenia Space System Chief Engineer Francois Carraud will cover several aspects of the company's multi-level defensive roadmap, including: protection against outside threats (perimeter defense); and protection against acts perpetrated internally, whether deliberately or accidentally. Carraud will explain why this new approach builds cybersecurity into Thales' systems during the design phase -- and how this change is having a profound impact on the company's organization.
