Welcome to CYSAT '21

What's driving us?

Space engineers have historically focused on building reliable satellites often at the expense of security. ​
With the easier access to space and the boom of new space services collecting valuable data, space assets are becoming an attractive target for hackers. ​
Now is the time to build a European ecosystem able to respond to the current and future challenges of securing space assets, data and services in order to remain at par with leading space nations and preserve our sovereignty. ​

Switzerland has proved to be one of the most innovative country in the world and has made cybersecurity a national priority. ​
CYSEC, in partnership with AP-Swiss, wants to give the European space community the opportunity to learn, share and connect on the topic of cybersecurity by bringing selected executives, ethical hackers and experts together in Davos, Switzerland for a 3-days event. ​
