11.02.2016

PSSI participated in the 18th Asian Security Conference held in New Delhi on February 9-11, 2016, entitled “Securing Cyberspace: Asian and International Perspectives” organized by the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses” (agenda available here). The gathering brought together Indian, European, Japanese, U.S., South Korean, Chinese, Australian and other governmental and non-governmental experts in the field of cyberspace security.  PSSI’s Space Security Program Director, Jana Robinson, made a presentation, and contributed an article, to this prestigious gathering entitled “Governance Challenges at the Intersection of Space and Cyber Security”. The presentation and the paper examined considerations relevant to more effective crisis management preparedness. She argued that configuring transparency and confidence-building measures (TCBMs) need to be accompanied by robust crisis management, including the prospect of (often asymmetric) penalties and other responses to future crises. Taken together they provide the proper ingredients to construct an architecture for the management of sensitive space situations/incidents, as well as a credible deterrent.
