Join us for a timely conversation with Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid and New York Times national security correspondent David Sanger on the implications of the global pandemic response on cybersecurity, privacy, and democracy.

Estonia currently holds the presidency of the UN Security Council and is a leader in digital innovation from elections to personal identity. How can these be leveraged to adjust to the new normal during this global pandemic? How can nations protect their citizens and provide essential government functions digitally? What particular challenges does the COVID-19 pandemic pose from a cybersecurity perspective? How can states work together to fight those threats and strengthen norms for cyberspace while protecting democratic principles and values?
