Washington, D.C., March 18, 2022 – The Satellite Industry Association (SIA) today reiterated the Association’s commitment to cybersecurity best practices that help ensure the industry continues to deliver safe and reliable satellite services to its customers in America and around the world.
Cybersecurity is critical to the satellite industry’s core goal: providing mission critical, highly reliable, and secure connectivity, communications and services. The satellite industry has a long history of providing secure solutions to diverse global customers, including military and government users, corporations of every size and type, the non-profit and scientific communities, and individual consumers.
Given the reliance of our economy and national security on secure communications, evolving attacks by criminals, terrorists, and nation-states properly concern national leaders and the private sector. The cyber threat environment is complex, and the stakes are high. While no system can be perfectly secure, each organization’s commitment to foundational security principles helps all contributors to the industry, from software vendors to equipment manufacturers and service providers, improve their security risk profile.
SIA has adopted a statement and series of principles promoting the development and use of best practices and greater collaboration on important matters of cybersecurity.
