SSPI-Luxembourg Zoom: Cybersecurity Law and Policy for the Space Industry
The SSPI Luxembourg Chapter invites you to listen to P.J. Blount, a Research Fellow in Cybersecurity Governance and Regulation at SES and the University of Luxembourg. In his session, we will take a look together at cybersecurity for the space industry from a legal perspective. Though cybersecurity is often considered a technical domain, law and policy are significant drivers in how organizations develop their approaches to cyber secure operations. This talk will discuss the law and policy aspect of cybersecurity with a special emphasis on the unique aspects of the space domain.
“Law and policy are significant drivers in how organizations develop their approaches to cyber secure operations.” - P.J. Blount
We welcome SSPI members as well as any interested satellite and space colleagues who share passion for our industry. Registration is required to receive access information.
