The biggest European event entirely dedicated to

Cybersecurity for the space industry

April 24-25th, 2024

Organized by CYSEC

Raising awareness about cybersecurity for space assets and data

Today, many critical services on Earth depend on
the collection and transmission of data by satellites. According to Allied Market Research, downstream services relying on satellite data will represent a $19,36B market by 2027 at a CAGR of 19,1%.


Ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of space data against cyber threats is a new challenge as satellites have historically been designed to be reliable and not secure.

In addition, recent trends such as software-defined satellites, usage of COTS components, in-orbit reconfigurations, intelligence on board, quantum technologies, etc are making space assets and data more and more vulnerable to cyber-attacks.


CYSAT aims at bringing together the space and IT security communities to build a European ecosystem capable to respond to the current and future challenges faced by the European space industry.

Where is it?

For its third edition, CYSAT remains in Paris!

Considering the growing importance of cybersecurity and space, the third edition will reinforce its ambition to become a central node for the space industry.


Hosted in downtown Paris, at the Station F, CYSAT’23 will be ideally positioned to attract both space and cybersecurity players from the industry, academia, national and European agencies.

You can't come to Paris ? CYSAT will broadcast all conferences on its interactive platform.

CYSAT: The leading European cybersecurity and space exhibition

The biggest European event entirely focused on cybersecurity for the space industry will take place in Paris in April 2023. Since 2021, the event brings space and cybersecurity experts together to create a European ecosystem capable of responding to the current and future challenges faced by the European space industry


CYSEC, a leading cybersecurity company, is organising the third edition of CYSAT, the largest European event entirely dedicated to cybersecurity for the space industry, on 26th and 27th April 2023 at Station F in Paris.


Faced with cybersecurity challenges and the growing importance of data protection in space, it is crucial to bring together communities of cybersecurity experts to build a European ecosystem capable of addressing current and future industry challenges.


Last years’ event saw more than 450 space specialists, decision-makers and experts come together. In its third year, CYSAT will highlight Europe’s cybersecurity capabilities and solutions dedicated to space from both a technological and geostrategic perspective.

What to expect at the event:

  • An exclusive testimony by Colonel Oleksandr Potii, Deputy Chairman of the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine A year since the cyber-attack on satellite network KA-SAT, Potii will reflect on what lessons can be learned from this attack.
  • Talks and keynotes from renowned industry experts, including Philippe Baptiste, President of
    CNES, Jean-Marc Nasr, Vice-President Space at Airbus Defence and Space, Massimo Mercati, Head of
    Security at ESA and Greg Wyler, founder of E-Space.
  • Workshops and demonstrations highlighting the know-how of the space industry

Mathieu Bailly, VP Space at CYSEC and Director of CYSAT said: “Last years’ CYSAT event focused on the importance and critical value of space data, in a particularly charged geopolitical context. Data protection has proven to be a major issue for both companies and European countries in recent times. This year, we want to bring the major players in space and cybersecurity together again, with the aim to create a sovereign European ecosystem, capable of addressing these technological and economic challenges.

“We hope to foster a continuum between established players and newcomers in the space industry to demonstrate Europe’s capacity for innovation and the opportunities this new ecosystem will create.”
