The Final Annotated Outline for the Cybersecurity Framework Profile for Hybrid Satellite Networks has published!

 The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is pleased
to release the final annotated outline for the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)
Profile for Hybrid Satellite Networks (HSN). The HSN Community of Interest
(COI) is using this annotated outline to build the HSN CSF Profile, a practical
guide for organizations and stakeholders engaged in the design, acquisition,
and operation of satellite buses or payloads involving HSN. This will allow
non-commercial use of commercial satellites in a manner that is consistent with
the sponsor organization’s risk tolerance.

The Profile will be structured around the NIST Cybersecurity
Framework and aims to be suitable for applications that involve multiple
stakeholders contributing to communications architecture and for other use
cases such as hosted payloads. Use of the HSN Profile will help organizations:

  • Identify systems, assets, data,
    and risks that pertain to HSN
  • Protect HSN services by
    adhering to cybersecurity principles and self-assessment
  • Detect cybersecurity-related
    disturbances or corruption of HSN services and data
  • Respond to HSN service or data
    anomalies in a timely, effective, and resilient manner
  • Recover the HSN to proper
    working order at the conclusion of a cybersecurity incident

If you have expertise in Commercial Space capabilities, please
join the HSN COI to help shape this important profile.
