Space policy roundup – Nov.22.2019

A sampling of links to recent space policy, politics, and government (US and international) related space news and resource items that I found of interest (find previous space policy roundups here):


** The Space ISAC, Cybersecurity and Innovation | Kratos Communications

Erin Miller, Director of Business Development at The National Cybersecurity Center in Colorado Springs, explains what the Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC) is and why we need it. As Erin explains, a 1998 presidential directive requires the development of ISACs to protect our critical infrastructures from threats and vulnerabilities. There are about 25 different ISACs to support major industry sectors such as financial services, information technology, natural gas and others. As space transcends virtually all these sectors it was only natural that there be a Space ISAC. In this episode of Constellations, Erin will also discuss new developments and strategies to combat increasing cybersecurity and other threats to our space assets.
