Hearing from KROLL on cyber security in the afternoon session was very interesting too; it’s definately something that is becoming an increasing concern globally so it was great to hear what precautions we can take to stay protected.I took a lot away from the training day and will use what I’ve learned going forward in my work as a developing charter broker.As my first experience of a BACA event, I thoroughly enjoyed the training day and look forward to attending more BACA events and training days in the future.”Our BACA membershipBaltic Air Charter Association (BACA) is the leading association focussed on the role of the air charter broker in the aviation market and works to promote integrity and ethical business practices.
