It’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
Cybersecurity is critically important to SpaceLink. We're joining the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) in raising awareness during the month of October. CISA leads the national effort to understand, manage, and reduce risk to our cyber and physical infrastructure.
October is Cybersecurity awareness month. SpaceLink is partnering with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCA) to help promote the 19th annual #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth. Follow CISA and Jen Easterly as they release new #CyberBasics every Monday and Thursday for the month of October, to help protect organizations and individuals.
Since 2004, the President of the United States and Congress have declared October to be Cybersecurity Awareness Month, helping individuals protect themselves online as threats to technology and confidential data become more commonplace. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) lead a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise cybersecurity awareness nationally and internationally.
4 Things You Can Do
Throughout October, CISA and NCA will highlight key action steps that everyone should take:
- Enable Multi-Factor Authentication
- Use Strong Passwords
- Recognize and Report Phishing
- Update Your Software
SpaceLink is building a constellation of relay satellites in MEO that use optical intersatellite links to securely speed communications between spacecraft on orbit and users on the ground. Increased human spaceflight missions and proliferated LEO constellations are creating ground station bottlenecks and conflicted RF spectrum for many satellite operators. The SpaceLink network will relieve this congestion to address the burgeoning market demand for immediate data delivery.
A company recognized for its outstanding innovation, SpaceLink recently announced it was awarded a contract by DARPA to participate in its Space-BACN program. Earlier in August 2022, SpaceLink announced it entered into a Research and Development Agreement with the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Technical Center.
