The issues surrounding both cyber and space security are becoming increasingly intertwined. As such, the US national security community has been hard at work, examining the challenges and opportunities that are impacting both sectors.

The evolution and increased complexity of information technology capabilities, which are a key component of space systems architectures, have made the systems more vulnerable to cyber attacks. The growing concern over cyber threats has made us focus more intently on mission resilience.

The George C. Marshall Institute and the TechAmerica Space Enterprise Council have brought together a panel of top national security experts to discuss the latest on how industry and government are addressing emerging cyber threats that threaten information assurance and mission resilience.

The Discussion was moderated by John B. Sheldon, Executive Director of the Marshall Institute, and David Logsdon of the TechAmerica Space Enterprise Council. The panelists were:

  • Colonel Daniel “Sphinx” Dant, U.S. Air Force, Director of Programming, Operations & Governance, OSD AT&L, Department of Defense
  • Travis Cottom, Program Associate for Defense and Space, George C. Marshall Institute
  • Dr. Yadunath Zambre, Chief Scientist and Senior Fellow, Advanced Technology Center, Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company
