Securing Space: Kaspersky to Give Cosmonauts Cybersecurity Training

July 14, 2019 / Al Bawaba

Kaspersky is proud to announce its new partnership with the Gagarin Research and Test Cosmonaut Training Center – the location in Star City where cosmonauts from all over the world prepare to go to space. As part of this collaboration, the company will hold special training for cosmonauts, as well as IT specialists at the center, to educate them on the current cybersecurity landscape. Space development and exploration is actively driven by advanced technology and it is important that the industry remains protected. Today, when cyberattack in normal daily life can be costly and lead to extreme consequences, similar threats could be even more devastating in the space industry. Kaspersky organizes special cybersecurity training, during which world-leading security experts of the Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) introduce current and future cosmonauts, and industry professionals, to the essential basics of cybersecurity. Here they reinforce how they can explore space safely.
