MEMBERS ONLY SESSION: Space Dependency Analysis Overview, National Risk Management Center

22 April 2021 | Space ISAC Members Only

This briefing will highlight an on-going CISA/NRMC effort at understanding the relationship between the National Critical Functions (NCFs) and space assets/operations (including the ground segment). Ronald Keen will cover a deeper understanding of the methodology used in understanding the relationships and dive into how the upstream and downstream impacts involve and affect other NCFs that may or may not be associated with space.  He will also briefly discuss and offer some examples of how adversaries may be able to use direct and indirect NCF and cross-NCF relationships to effect attack-vectors against space asset targets.

Additionally, Ronald Keen will expand on how non-adversarial events can also impact space assets both from the space operation to the NCF and in reverse. The key is to gain an appreciation for these relationships to create opportunities for public/private interaction to develop resiliency and robustness plans. 

Currently the Senior Advisor for Energy and other issues to Director of the National Risk Management Center, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Ronald Keen is a retired Air Force officer with an extensive background in intelligence and missile and space systems operations, as well as critical infrastructure protection. Concluding a distinguished military career, Ron accepted the position as a Division Director in the Indiana State government directing research and testifying on issues within the utility regulatory environment with an emphasis on energy, cybersecurity and critical infrastructure. He accepted his current position with the Department after retiring from State government service. Ron earned his Bachelors at Southwest Texas State University and is a graduate of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University with a Masters in Aeronautical Science. A published author, Ron and his wife, Susan, have five children.

The Value of Space Summit

October 15-16, 2020 | Virtual Event

Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Space ISAC) and Aerospace Corporation are hosting a 2-day summit, the Value of Space, focusing on the importance of space critical infrastructure to people living on Earth now and in the future. This community event brings the public and private sector together to discuss critical infrastructure protection for the space sector from a variety of perspectives.

On Day 1 we will dialogue with stakeholders from the U.S. Government, international partners, industry members, and ISACs to answer questions about what space critical infrastructure needs protection, how other sectors are using space assets, and to discuss emerging threats to space. The Center for Space Policy and Strategy paper will help inform the discussion. On Day 2 we will review policies and legislation being pursued globally to secure the space mission.

The objective of the Space ISAC is to bring the global space together to identify and respond to threats and provide timely, actionable information to the entire space sector. Through this event we want to promote awareness of Space ISAC, increase the likelihood that space infrastructure in protected through reduced risk and active information sharing.
