Space ISAC and NY InfraGard to Collaborate on Cybersecurity in Space
The Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Space ISAC) and the New York Metro InfraGard Members Alliance (NYM-IMA) have agreed to work together to advance the mission of cybersecurity in space.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) enabling collaboration between the two organizations was signed earlier this month. In a statement released to announce the news, the organizations said that the aim of the partnership was to promote broad-based participation by members of both organizations.
This participation will take the form of enhanced educational initiatives, training of both users and operators, and intelligence-sharing activities in the space domain.
Space ISAC serves to facilitate collaboration across the global space industry. The organization defines its mission as "to enhance the ability to prepare for and respond to vulnerabilities, incidents, and threats; to disseminate timely and actionable information among member entities; and to be the primary communications channel for the space sector with respect to this information."
To date, Space ISAC has teamed up with a broad range of organizations that spans the entire horizon of the space industry. Collaborations have been set up with organizations in space missions, education and research,
