Conversation One: Cybersecurity and Data Protection

The privacy and security concerns of CAAs are constantly evolving and changing. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the pace of this change intensified, posing unique legal and technological challenges to CAAs, and raising important questions that CAAs will continue to grapple with even after the pandemic.
