The Space Information Sharing & Analysis Centre (ISAC) located in the National Cyber Centre (NCC) in Colorado, USA, serves to facilitate collaboration across the global space industry to enhance the ability to prepare for and respond to vulnerabilities, incidents, and threats. It aims to disseminate timely and actionable information among member entities and to serve as the primary communications channel for the space sector with respect to the above-mentioned information.
CyberOps onboarded as a Space ISAC member in October 2022 and Dr Daniel Floreani was invited to speak on a panel at the third annual Value of Space Summit in Colorado Springs. Daniel spoke about Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) for space systems, an evolving set of cybersecurity concepts that move defences from static, network-based perimeters to focus on users, assets, and resources.
At CyberOps, we aim to continue to lift the Australian government’s security posture in the space industry by developing the Space Cyber Framework (SCF) and the Space Cyber Architecture (SCA) as part of our work for Defence. The SCA has been developed to create a common framework for different elements of the space ecosystem to assess their security practices against established standards and to assist the Australian Space ecosystem as a whole to strengthen its cyber security posture. Compliance levels against the framework can be used by organisations for activities such as applying for licences from the Australian Space Agency or as part of Australian Defence supply chain engagements. The framework is also applicable for space companies that are selling products or services to Australian critical infrastructure providers. For more information, please contact us at email@example.com
