Space and cyberspace

SPNET is facilitating the development of innovative solutions, standards and knowledge-sharing for common threats, risk assessment and responses for cybersecurity in space, as well as other critical infrastructure in both civilian and military areas. This includes for example, smart grid and industrial process control systems and unmanned and manned aerial, underwater and ground vehicles.

SPNET identifies as being critical, the need to explicitly incorporate and formalize legal and ethical considerations for public policy decision makers to use in relation to cyber and space technologies.


To achieve this, SPNET is consulting with technology developers, end-users, and regulators in the Five Eyes countries — an intelligence alliance including Canada, United States, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

We believe it is necessary to foster agile and responsive multi-stakeholder risk mitigation tactics that can be augmented by involving an international community of willing academics, industry and government stakeholders.
