RESTON, VA (April 16, 2018)
Toffler Associates has deep roots in the space industry and a long-standing relationship with the Space Foundation. That relationship continues this year at the 34th Space Symposium, held April 16-19 at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. Sponsored by the Space Foundation, the program brings together more than 9,000 space industry professionals for the premier global, commercial, civil, military and emergent space conference.
Risk strategist Masseh Tahiry will open day two of the main Symposium Program and facilitate a full slate of dynamic speakers and panels that address topics critical to today’s modern space landscape. The featured speakers reflect the wide scope of engagement and influence in the transformation of space: The Honorable Wilbur L. Ross, Jr., U.S. Secretary of Commerce; Robert Lightfoot, Jr. NASA Acting Administrator; General John W. “Jay” Raymond, Commander of Air Force Space Command, U.S. Air Force; Betty Sapp, Director of the National Reconnaissance Office; Marillyn Hewson, Chairman, President and CEO of Lockheed Martin; General David L. Goldfein, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force; and Tomasz Husak, head of cabinet for the European Commission.
Masseh operates within the cyber risk, fintech, and space-based technology arenas to identify and communicate the interdependencies of critical infrastructure risks to organizations, their workforce and consumers. He holds an MA in international commerce and policy with a concentration in complex transnational threats.
Later this spring Toffler Associates will co-host its annual Future States Dinner with the Space Foundation. The invitation-only event gathers top leaders to discuss the issues and challenges vital to advancing the space industry, such as expected technological innovations, anticipated market disruptions and effectively managing risk of future space endeavors.
