From 30 November to 2 December, the Satellite Applications Catapult, in partnership with the British High Commission to Australia, hosted three workshops on Cyber Security in Space.
These workshops sought to encourage Australian and UK businesses to engage on a number of cross-sector challenges, to develop an awareness in Cybersecurity, and to highlight the opportunities that this area presents in the International Space Sector. Experts from leading organisations discussed topics of interest followed by smaller group facilitated discussions with our distinguished speakers.
155 companies from Australia and the United Kingdom registered for these three workshops and through facilitated discussions with experts in the field, companies were able to gain knowledge of cross-sector opportunities in the UK and Australia. The event resulted in a large number of follow up discussions for collaboration between the UK and Australia, this would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors at the British High Commission in Australian Space Agency.
This session provided context to the workshop series by describing the current global space-cybersecurity conjunction, the types of threats that the space sector faces, and the implications of a ‘do nothing’ approach.
Following on from the scene setting in the previous session, this segment explored national and international strategies to mitigate cyber related risks and create an understanding of the respective roles of government and industry in developing space-cybersecurity capacity.
The final session in the series aimed to identify joint UK – AUS pathways that can be exploited to build cybersecurity capacity in respective space infrastructures. We closed the series with a networking session to help join the right people to the right people from both countries.
