Topics will include:

  • The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Security Directives issued in 2021, changes to the Security Directives, first-hand lessons learned by the industry, and a look forward at the TSA’s plans to formalize its regulations. 
  • The Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act of 2022 (CIRCIA) and enhanced US Securities and Exchange Commission rules. 
  • Balancing a growing “alphabet soup” of federal regulatory requirements.
  • Managing regulatory engagements, including witness preparation, the importance of executive-level engagement, and suggestions for leveraging internal or external legal resources.
