NSR’s newly released white paper, Space Cybersecurity – Current State and Future Needs, finds that security practices related to the burgeoning satellite industry are insufficient and the move to a Zero-Trust Architecture (ZTA) in software design and systems management is a must to address emerging threats. The white paper is timely given the rapid expansion of.
In comparison, the “ground” segment in the industry is just beginning to ramp up, with relatively slower developments, in part due to the siloed nature of advancements at a components and sub-systems level.
The satellite industry is in the midst of the largest transformation since the inception of satellite communications over five decades ago. In this new era that can be referred to as “the 21st-century Space Race”, innovations in space technology have converged to pave the way for a truly disrupt-able environment.
