Booz Allen Becomes Founding Member of Space Info Sharing, Analysis Center

Jeff Brody

Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) has joined a public-private partnership that aims to gather, assess and distribute information about potential space asset threats, the Colorado Springs Business Journal reported Tuesday.

The company will bring its engineering, analytics and cybersecurity capabilities as a founding member of the Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center. Chris Bogdan, senior vice president of Booz Allen’s aerospace business, will serve as board member at Space ISAC.

The Science and Technology Partnership Forum established the center in 2017 with the intent to help space and cybersecurity professionals exchange data. Kratos Defense & Security Solutions (Nasdaq: KTOS) helped coordinated planning efforts and provided initial funds to support the establishment of ISAC operations.

“Our space community needs timely, actionable information to respond to attacks, and we can only do this if we work together in a high-trust information sharing environment,” said Erin Miller, director of business development and operations support at the National Cybersecurity Center.
