10th Annual CPS Addresses Evolution of Community in Security


Producing content in a secure environment — and protecting that content in an evolving media distribution ecosystem — requires a level of trust in today’s Hollywood. Transparency and collaboration between studios and their vendor partners have become crucial to improving security postures and responding to threats that target data and applications.

Building trust in the content protection community requires understanding of how content and information security requirements, workflows and governance continues to change, and strengthening the bond between content creators and service providers requires efficiencies in vetting the capabilities, intent and culture of how content security and information security is addressed throughout the company in terms of leadership, relationships, systems and services.

Industry leaders from the Hollywood studios, television networks and content production community are again scheduled to meet at the Dec. 4 at the Sheraton Universal in Los Angeles, when the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA) brings together industry leaders from the Hollywood studios, TV networks and content production community for the 10th annual Content Protection Summit (CPS).

This annual event is the premier gathering of Hollywood’s content protection and content security community.

The day-long event also includes thought leadership discussions as well as sessions on CDSA’s activities and a look to developments in 2020:

— National Cybersecurity and how industries can cross-collaborate more effectively;
— CDSA’s ME-ISAC security collaboration platform;
— Impact of deep fakes and how to authenticate what is “real”;
— CDSA’s October launch of the first-annual “Content Protection Month”; and
— An update on the Trusted Partner Network (TPN), CDSA’s joint-venture security initiative with the Motion Picture Association (MPA).

The event also features keynote addresses, panel discussions and CPS technology breakout sessions where service providers offer thought leadership presentations around their product developments. The afternoon also features the Women in Technology: Hollywood (WiTH) Workshop “Competencies for Success” program.

Produced by the Media & Entertainment Services Alliance (MESA), and under the direction of the CDSA Board of Directors and content advisors representing Amazon Studios, Adobe, Paramount, BBC Studios, NBC/Universal, Lionsgate, WarnerMedia, Amblin Entertainment, Legendary Pictures, and Lego Group, this year’s Content Protection Summit will also look ahead at the challenges facing the security community in 2020 and beyond. The CPS is the year-end event that focuses on our industry’s global battle against piracy, threats in cybersecurity and efforts in content protection – all issues that requires efficient tools and an effective industry cooperation to confront.
