Abstract

This paper will argue that it is imperative regulations on UAVs address cybersecurity and privacy issues in order to remain on the forefront of technology within the aviation industry. Although it may seem like it is more important to establish basic laws on UAS, legislators need to work proactively, rather than retroactively, to prevent detrimental cybersecurity and invasion of privacy events from occurring.

Keywords: unmanned aircraft system, unmanned aerial vehicle, drone, law, privacy, cybersecurity, aviation
