Description: Early in September, the United States established its first cybersecurity policy (SPD-5) for space systems. It is a major inflection point for the satellite industry wanting to work with government. So, what could the future relationship between the industry and government now look like? Will such a framework remain in place if there is a change in President in November? Here we talk to a number of people in the industry about the changing dynamics of this relationship and how things could evolve over the next decade between the US government and the satellite industry.

“Satellites: IOT, The Cloud: Combined Protection and Security” (virtual panel) 

Description: The satellite industry is gravitating more towards cloud-based services, which presents unique cyber challenges for government customers wishing to use satellite services. It is also going to be much more part of the souped up IoT networks going forward. As we move more towards cloud based services, as well as into this IoT revolution, we look at how space networks can build trust, and be a huge part of government networks going forward. 

The panel will be moderated by Mark Holmes, Editorial Director, Via Satellite.

Geist will be joined by fellow panelists Keith Frederick, CISO, RigNet; Rajeev Gopal, Vice President, Advanced Programs / DISD, Hughes; and Nick Rossman, Lead for Research and Operations, IBM X-Force IRIS, IBM.
