Cyber and Space Security: Creative Policy Approaches to New Technical Challenges

18 November 2015 - 9:30am to 5:30pm

Chatham House, London



The meeting will be divided into two sessions. The morning session will focus on how repressive regimes can attack satellite signals in order to disrupt television and (satellite-provided) internet for censorship purposes, notably through the use of jamming techniques. The afternoon session will focus on how in cases of conflict, one country’s ability to put the satellites of another country’s satellites (including GPS and earth observation satellites) out of action would give it a significant tactical advantage. The discussions will examine what can be done to counter such methods, from both technical and policy perspectives and pay particular attention to the security situation in northeast Asia.

This meeting is the second to be convened as part of the International Security Department’s cyber and space security project funded by the Sasakawa Peace Foundation.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
