Collaborative Groups

Working Groups and Task Forces are essential to raising the security posture of the space sector. In the Space ISAC we offer members participation in groups to share ideas and experiences, to network and conduct information exchange. We all come together to protect the space mission.

Communities of Interest

Small Sat Community of Interest

The Small-Sat Community of Interest is established as a virtual forum of small-satellite owners, operators and service providers. Commercial and government experts collaborate to identify, analyze, and develop mitigation strategies for the small-satellite industry.

Blockchain Community of Interest

This member group comes together to learn, investigate, and further understand blockchain knowledge and applications for space.

Working Groups

Information Sharing Working Group

The Information Sharing Working Group is a permanent working group authorized and established by the Board of Directors responsible for direction and oversight of the Space Watch Center, developing policies and best practices.

Analyst Working Group

The Analyst Working Group is a permanent working group for sharing threat intelligence regularly. This is the first group to get the call to a threat or crisis action. Intelligence Liaison Officers in the AWG are trained prior to onboarding.

Task Forces

SPD-5 Task Force

In response to the release of Space Policy Directive-5, Space ISAC members are working to develop best practices and standards for cybersecurity for the space community through the SPD-5 Task Force. This will ultimately help members plan for and develop robust cyber security defenses and maintain higher levels of readiness.

Exercise Task Force

The Tabletop Exercise Task Force focuses on creating crisis exercises in which members gather to talk about notional scenarios featuring a cybersecurity incident in space, led by a facilitator.

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Task Force

This group is actively working to bring Space ISAC into compliance for a CMMC Level and concurrently seeking to bring members more insight into the process for CMMC. We’ve conducted webinars and opened a resources page on the Space ISAC website. The member portal will also contain resources for CMMC in the coming months.

Space ISAC Summit Task Force

Members assist to develop the agenda and working sessions for the annual Space ISAC Summit.
