Vulnerable Supply Chains in the Space Industry


We discuss Vulnerable Supply Chains in the Space Industry with our partner Payload Space.

Critical supply chains are the weakest link to a devastating cyber-attack. The risks posed by critical suppliers and the wider supply chain are growing for all space companies.

Hackers are using innovative ML/AI to penetrate advanced manufacturing, communications, 3D Printing, and encrypted networks. This webinar will include experts who will discuss enhancing resiliency, privacy, and posture as we enter the wild-west of space: ML/AI-based attacks and quantum computing. We will also dive into insurance companies contemplating not renewing cyber policies for vulnerable space companies.
