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.

L'espace, nouvelle frontière de la guerre informatique ?

Alors qu’il y a de plus en plus de satellites en orbite autour de la Terre, les spécialistes de la cybersécurité rencontrés par France 24 craignent que ces constellations deviennent un nouveau terrain de jeux pour la cyberguerre ou la criminalité informatique. Le conflit en Ukraine en a été l’une des premières démonstrations.
