A satellite may seems like a great way to communicate information without world governments spying on it. But really, a satellite is little more than a relay point to help information reach from one location to the next. And if it’s a satellite in geosynchronous orbit – or one that never changes its location – it can be even easier for hackers and government security agencies to access. And in the past, it has been demonstrated by more than one group how easy and how inexpensive accessing sensitive data through satellites can be. You may argue that satellite communications are encrypted, but most hacking organizations will have the tools to break that encryption.
