In this podcast Patrick Gray talks to Tom Uren about a report by CSC 2.0 that recommends the US government designate space systems as critical infrastructure. Lots of satellites systems are already covered under other critical infrastructure sectors such as communication or defence, but Tom agrees that there are some good reasons to carve out a space-specific critical infrastructure sector.

They also talk about the US State Department working on developing a portfolio of cyber diplomacy “offerings”, ranging from disaster relief funding, to technical capacity building, through to policy-level cyber education. This seems like a great idea.
