Cybersecurity in the space sector

It starts with the supply chain

How KPMG can help: Cyber Security Services

There is a growing imperative for all business leaders to consider the impact of space activities on their organization. The pervasiveness of space-originating data and services in our economy and everyday lives underscores this imperative. Additionally, the potential for conflict in the space domain is on the rise.

When looking at cybersecurity considerations for the space sector, it should start before assets are even built and operational. It needs to begin in the supply chain. And it’s most effective to address cybersecurity in the earliest stages of building the components of the space architecture and embedding risk-reducing measures that meet the organizational mission and business objectives into the design and supply chain.1

Key insights to take into consideration when developing cybersecurity for space sector supply chains:

  • Space assets are high-value targets.
  • Due to specialized nature of today’s satellites, customization is widespread,
  • Lead times can be extra-long due in part to raw materials and required rigorous testing.

To start mitigating risk in your space supply chain, read about the five considerations that can help your organization get started.
