Seventh Annual CDSA Content Protection Summit Announced


Industry leaders from the Hollywood studios, television networks and content production community are again scheduled to meet at the 7th Annual CDSA Content Protection Summit on Dec. 7 at the Marina del Rey Marriott. With the theme “Protecting the New Hollywood,” this year’s full-day conference program will address the dynamic challenges encountered in managing risk, thwarting attacks and educating their teams while protecting their business practices and customers’ privacy.

“The open exchange of ideas that takes place every year at CDSA’s Content Protection Summit has contributed to a new collaborative culture of mutual support in Hollywood,” says Bryan Ellenburg, Conference Chairman and CDSA Security Consultant. “For majors and independents, from the set to the studio, new digital workflows and systems are offering tremendous creative opportunities, efficiencies – and security challenges – for those executives and business units charged with protecting IP from prying eyes and pirate profiteers.”

Produced by the Media & Entertainment Services Alliance (MESA) and under the direction of content advisors representing Amblin, AMC, Disney, HBO, Fox, New Regency, Legendary, Lionsgate, NBCUniversal, Paramount, Sony, Turner and Warner, all of whom work together with the non-profit Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA) year-round, the Content Protection Summit is the only event of the year where everyone who’s anyone responsible for “Protecting the New Hollywood” attends to learn about:

• Securing Workflows of All Things Digital
• Building Executive Understanding & Support
• Applying Risk Management & Frameworks
• Turning The Table On Hackers
• Budgeting for Production & Post Production Security
• Building a Cross-Industry Security Platform
• Monetizing Piracy
• Safeguarding the Consumer and the IoT
• Protecting Against Insider Threat(s)
