Taproot Contributes to Space Security

Taproot Security and others advise government space agencies


Saint Paul, MN, June 20, 2022 – Taproot Security founder Michael McCormick and other security researchers were invited to a recent Space Cybersecurity Symposium to discuss space mission threats. US government agencies present included NASA, NIST, NOAA, CISA, DHS. The Space ISAC and many commercial space firms also participated, as well as space agencies from EU and India.


Mike said afterwards that the discussions were enlightening, adding "Like every new frontier in history, space will attract bad actors. We have an opportunity to bake security into space exploration now, an investment that will pay huge dividends in the future."
