Abstract

Cybersecurity is a critical concern in satellite telecommunications networks, given their vulnerability to cyber threats. This abstract presents a conceptual development of current trends, challenges, and strategic responses in using cybersecurity analytics to protect these networks. The paper discusses the increasing reliance on satellite telecommunications, making them attractive targets for cyber attacks. It explores the role of cybersecurity analytics in detecting and mitigating these threats, highlighting the importance of proactive monitoring and threat intelligence. Challenges in cybersecurity analytics for satellite networks are identified, including the complexity of satellite systems, the limited visibility into network traffic, and the evolving nature of cyber threats. The paper discusses strategic responses to these challenges, such as the use of advanced analytics techniques, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to enhance threat detection and response capabilities. Key trends in cybersecurity analytics for satellite networks are examined, including the growing adoption of cloud-based security solutions, the rise of insider threats, and the need for collaboration between satellite operators and cybersecurity experts. The paper also discusses the importance of regulatory compliance and the role of industry standards in ensuring the security of satellite networks. In conclusion, the paper emphasizes the importance of cybersecurity analytics in protecting satellite telecommunications networks and recommends a proactive approach to cybersecurity that includes continuous monitoring, threat intelligence sharing, and collaboration with cybersecurity experts.
