The objective of this feasibility study is to assess the technical feasibility and commercial viability of satellite-based servicesin support of cybersecurity for diverse vertical sectors. Any resulting studies are also intended to establish the roadmap for service implementation through potential follow-on demonstration projects. Potential services should:be enabled by Space as a means to mitigate the cyber security risks and to enhance cyber resistance and the resilience of existing infrastructures, services and operations; and/or contribute to enhancing the end-to-end cyber security of Space-based applications. The following vertical market sectors have been identified as facing an increasing cyber threat and therefore are likely to further invest in safeguard measures:Transport (maritime, land, air, including autonomous vehicles); Energy, Utilities and Critical Infrastructures; Financial Sector; and Public Safety.The new services and solutions to be investigated can address cyber security prevention, protection, detection and/or response activities. Combination of space with innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data analytics, or Quantum Cryptography Distribution is encouraged.
