Event Details

The University of Strathclyde, in collaboration with the International Space University, are hosting Space Cyber Executive Course & Conference 2024 from 13th – 17th May 2024. The three-day Executive Course will run from 13th -15th May 2024 in the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, followed by a two-day (16th -17th May) conference on space and cybersecurity in the Technology and Innovation Centre.

The Space Cyber Executive Course provides an overview of space and space-related subjects and is intended for professionals working in the space sector or professionals currently working outside the space ecosystem who want to develop a better understanding of the rapidly evolving space sector. Participants will have the opportunity to gain post-graduate level micro-credentials and the course content will cover:

· An overview of the Space Sector and Cyber Security in Space

· Satellite Building and programming overview

· Understanding threats, vulnerabilities, detection and response

· Emerging Space Technology, policy, law/regulation and compliance (with a cyber-security focus)

· International co-operation, space diplomacy and geo-political context

· Entrepreneurship in Space and opportunities in space cyber

· Simulation and decision-making exercise

The conference Space: Securing our Entrepreneurial Future is open to those attending the Executive Course and additional participants interested in the conference theme or associated research. This exciting event will delve into the intersection of space technology innovations, cyber security, thought leadership and entrepreneurship, bringing together speakers from the world of academia, industry, and security to explore the emerging challenges in the commercial space sector. The key focus of this conference is the increasing need to prioritise secure-by-design cyber security and resilience planning from the outset, in a rapidly growing space industry. This is particularly important as there is a global skills gap in both the space and cyber domains. By addressing these challenges and fostering collaboration, the conference aims to pave the way to work together to create a secure and thriving entrepreneurial space sector.
