In parallel, efforts to incorporate cybersecurity as an integral part of aviation safety and operational continuity are gaining momentum with both regulators and industry.


We will focus on the practicalities of implementing cybersecurity in the recovering aviation sector. How do we move from the planning stage to implementation? What are the challenges we face, and what are some of the emerging solutions?



Who should attend?
