HITS Fall: Entertainment Partners to Offer Identity Protection Insights for Productions

It’s a balance every media and entertainment firm is confronted with today: How do you advance your tech capabilities while minimizing the associated risks that comes with digitizing productions? Entertainment Partners has a few ideas on how to find that balance.

On Oct. 3 at HITS Fall, Darren Ehlers, SVP of product management, and Martin Mazor, SVP and CISO, will give attendees a look at EP’s suite of products and how they help clients protect user identities, make sure studios stay in compliance, and keep productions secure, during the breakout session “Protecting User Identities.”

“Attendees will hear about the ever-increasingly complexities facing production teams today: production personnel need to be experts in global compliance issues, taxation variances, localized production resources and more,” they said. “As content production expands internationally, privacy legislation tightens, and skilled resources become scarcer, the risks for security increase exponentially. They will learn how technology is being used not only to streamline processes and eliminate paper, but also how to protect productions so they avoid costly mistakes.”

The breakout session will be moderated by Joe Francis, field operations effectiveness advisor for TPG Capital.

HITS Fall is presented by Entertainment Partners, with sponsorship by Genpact, Variety Business Intelligence, edgescan, LiveTiles, MarkLogic, the Entertainment ID Registry (EIDR), Signiant, Cinelytic, Microsoft Azure, Richey May Technology Solutions and Comcast Technology Solutions.

The event is produced by the Media & Entertainment Services Alliance (MESA) and the Hollywood IT Society (HITS), in association with Women in Technology: Hollywood (WiTH); the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA); and the Smart Content Council.
