Hybrid Satellite Networks (HSN) Cybersecurity Virtual Workshop


On July 12, 2022, the NCCoE released a draft annotated outline for a Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) Profile for Hybrid Satellite Networks (HSN) to improve the cybersecurity of non-commercial use of commercial hybrid satellite networks, as well as a call to action for submitting comments prior to a virtual workshop discussion.

During this virtual workshop, we will discuss the comments received on the draft annotated outline. We will also provide an overview of the upcoming draft CSF profile for HSN and future efforts that can be used to secure the space domain.
