Most of us understand the damage caused by cyberattacks on Earth. In space, the consequences of cyberattacks are much more dire. They can sabotage years of economic activity, threaten national security and the lives of astronauts and in-space personnel, and spark uncontrollable military action in an already dangerous environment. In this episode, we’ll learn about how modern approaches to cyber and national security change when dealing with complex in-space infrastructure, and protecting human activity in space. In part 1 of this discussion, we talked about the legal framework and policies needed to protect the Future Space Economy. Part 2 focuses on the software, tools, and technological solutions needed to protect space networks.

John Moberly
Sr. Vice President of Space, SpiderOak
John Moberly brings capabilities spanning technical network exploita-tion and algorithm development, space system development and space protection, and experience in the Intelligence Community and Federal programming, budget, and acquisition processes. As SVP for Space, he leads SpiderOak’s pivot to space leveraging the company’s zero trust and cybersecurity foundational capabilities and helps address the urgent needs of data and space network system security so that critical information dominance can be achieved with full data integrity.

John Moberly is the SVP for Space for SpiderOak. Space Cyber is the most critical vulnerability of our space systems and space-based networks require different approaches than terrestrial cybersecurity and SpiderOak is uniquely positioned with our zero trust blockchain approach to lead solutions to meet these architectural needs in space and ground segments as well as other unattended sensor architectures. Prior to SpiderOak, John led the US Federal subsidiary for LeoLabs, venture capital based startup building a global radar network capability to improve space domain awareness - another space enabling function like cyber. He previously led the Space & Intelligence Business Area for Arete, a company with work largely focused on algorithms for weak signature detection and AI/Machine Learning applications for GEOINT (Geo-spatial Intelligence) Systems, including developing a concept that won a “Prestigious Pitch Award” at the Air Force 2019 Space Pitch Day. He was also highly involved in NRO, DARPA Blackjack, Space Development Agency, and commercial satellite algorithm development focusing around on-board processing and weak/dim signature detection.

John also brings industry experience from Hughes Network Systems networking and satellite communications and General Dynamics Mission Systems leading business development for classified space and intelligence programs.

LTC (ret) Moberly retired from the Army after 20 years of which the last 12 years were as a space operations officer with tours in the NRO Advanced Systems and Technology (AS&T) and as systems engineer on a highly successful project that provided a new source and method to intelligence and worked other National Security Space efforts. His military career culminated in assignment to the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (AT&L), Space & Intelligence Office leading oversight of Intelligence Community Major Systems Acquisitions and Research and Development programs in con-junction with his Office of the Director of National Intelligence counter-parts.

John has Executive Certification in Science & Technology Public Policy from Harvard University’s JFK School of Government, MS in Aeronautics/Astronautical Engineering with EE graduate minor in Control Systems from Stanford University, MS in Engineering Management from University of Missouri S&T, and BS in Systems Engineering (Mech Systems) from the United States Military Academy, West Point.
