UK-Australia Cyber Security in Space

30 November - 2 December

The UK-Australia Cyber Security in Space Workshop series, presented by the Satellite Applications Catapult and the British High Commission to Australia, will run from Monday 30 November to Wednesday 2 December, with one-hour online sessions each day and a virtual networking event to close.

These workshops are intended to encourage Australian – UK business engagement and awareness in Cybersecurity and to highlight the opportunities that this area presents in the International Space Sector. Through facilitated discussions with experts in the field, companies will gain knowledge of the current Space-Cybersecurity nexus and the associated cross-sector opportunities (collaborative and commercial) in, and between, the UK and Australia.

Participants will hear from Space and Cybersecurity advisors, Industry primes, and end users. With three speakers from both Australia and UK followed by a facilitated group discussion, attendees will be able to have meaningful discussions around the speakers’ experiences and perceptions and identify possible opportunities.

Supporting increased bi-lateral business to business engagements and guided by sector leaders, these workshops facilitate international collaborative partnerships and projects between the UK and Australia.

More details on additional speakers will be added soon.
