Demand for cybersecurity professionals has never been greater.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that the industry will experience job growth of 31% between 2019 and 2029. That is a much faster growth rate than most other industries will experience.

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) shows the number of new cybersecurity programs has increased by 33% while cybersecurity job postings have grown by 94% in the past six years.

And where are all these new cybersecurity professional jobs to be found?  Start by taking a look at the sky.

Space cybersecurity is an up and coming field. And when you think about it, that makes a lot of sense. Space-based assets are essential for supplying a wide spectrum of critical civilian, commercial and military-related services.

In addition to the ever-present issue of orbital debris, the increasing number of space-faring nations and space aspirants, new and emerging space technologies (e.g., microsatellites) and their proliferation to a large number of state and non-state actors, present challenges to security policy decision-makers globally.

The security of the space around our earth is an emerging international issue. The world is working now to figure out how to best manage space security and how to use space sustainably.

No country or group of countries can lay claim to outer space. But now that space is being used by humans more and more, it’s important the world comes up with ways to protect it.

As every cybersecurity professional understand, our society’s overwhelming reliance on space technology puts us all in a precarious position.

For example, in industries like transport and logistics, location data is routinely recorded in real time from GPS satellites and sent to back offices to allow teams to track drivers and assets.

Organizations which have remote outposts or ocean-going ships can’t exactly get online via a mobile or cable network, so they have to use communications satellites instead. On top of that, satellites store sensitive information they collect themselves, which might include images of sensitive military installations or critical infrastructure.

All these aspects are extremely attractive targets to individual as well as group or state oriented cybercriminals.

Increasingly, data is transmitted via, and stored on, orbiting satellites. The continued proliferation of space exploration will only increase the reach of our connected environment.

Also, given the high value of data stored on satellites and other space systems, this renders them even more potentially attractive targets for cybercriminals.

Although residing in the vacuum of deep space makes them less vulnerable to physical attacks, space-based systems are still ultimately controlled from computers on the ground. That means they can be infected just like any other system.

Truth is, more certified space security specialist professionals are essential because no one really knows how secure space will be in the coming years. This is why IS4 (International Society of Space and Security Specialists) has stepped up to become the world’s only space cybersecurity certification authority. IS4 is now an international membership association for space and security professionals offering Certified Space Security Specialist Professional  (CSSSP) and other space cybersecurity certifications.

In coordination with IS4, Tonex offers Certified Space Security Specialist Professional (CSSSP) in order to train current and future personnel in how to more effectively manage space security issues.

Certified Space Security Specialist Professional (CSSSP) Course by Tonex

Although some of these issues are no different from other industries, space systems are met with a unique confluence of cybersecurity risks that complicates the sector’s remediation capabilities.

Governments, critical infrastructure and economies rely on space-dependent services—for example, the Global Positioning System (GPS)—that are vulnerable to hostile cyber operations. However, few space-faring states and companies have paid sufficient attention to the cybersecurity of satellites in outer space, creating a number of risks.

Accelerate your space cybersecurity career with the CSSSP certification.

Certified Space Security Specialist Professional (CSSSP)

Certified Space Security Specialist Professional (CSSSP) certification is ideal for space and security practitioners, analysts, engineers, managers and executives interested in proving their knowledge across space security best practices and principles.

The CSSSP® (Certified Space Systems Security Professional) qualification is one of the most respected certifications in the space security industry, demonstrating an advanced knowledge of space cybersecurity.

Earning the CSSSP proves you have what it takes to effectively design, implement and manage a cybersecurity space program. With a CSSSP, you validate your expertise and become a Space Cyber member, unlocking a broad array of exclusive resources, educational tools, seminars, conferences and networking opportunities.

CSSSP certification also explores factors that led to the space sector’s poor cybersecurity posture, various cyberattacks against space systems, and existing mitigation techniques employed by the sector.

Analyzing the current state of the industry along with security practices across similar sectors, several security principles for satellites and space assets are proposed to help reorient the sector toward designing, developing, building and managing cyber secure systems. These security principles address both technical and policy issues in order to address all space system stakeholders.

Prove your skills, advance your career, and gain the support of a community of cybersecurity leaders here to support you throughout your career.

The CSSSP qualification has been developed and maintained jointly by Tonex. Space Cyber Org, International Society of Space and Security Specialists (ISSSS/IS4), and Society of Space Security Professionals (SOSSP) are future membership organizations supporting CSSSP and other related space cybersecurity certifications
