Just a couple months ago, work-from-home was a nice-to-have option — one treated with skepticism by executives — for those in the media and entertainment space. The COVID-19 pandemic has quickly made it a critical necessity in order to keep business running. And with this new reality comes a new front in the cybersecurity and content protection battle the industry has waged for decades.
From choosing the most-secure-possible workflow, cloud and storage solutions available to facilitate a fully remote workforce; to discovering gaps in now-crucial business continuity plans; to evaluating threats to your intellectual property where your workforce is dispersed outside the office, the concerns — and threats — are like nothing media and entertainment has encountered before.
On the morning of May 12, the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA) will bring these and other M&E industry remote work concerns to the forefront, in the third annual Cybersecurity & Content Protection Summit.
Co-produced with the NAB Show — this time as a digital offering — the Cybersecurity & Content Protection Summit will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. PT, as part of the NAB Show Express experience.
Cybersecurity specialist Ralph Echemendia — known as the “The Ethical Hacker” — is set to deliver the keynote at the event — “Securing the Future of Media & Entertainment” — and it could not be more timely, as major technology players across all aspects of the business are being forced to quickly evaluate potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities in technologies that may have not been meant for full work-from-home deployment.
Attendees of the event will also hear from experts on crucial remote working M&E security topics about:
• Setting the Standards and Systems for Remote Access and Back to Work
• Redacted for Security And Privacy Purposes
• Data Doesn’t Lie: Media Industry Full of Credential Stuffing Attacks
• Protecting the Creative Process from Insider Threats
• The Evolution of Assessments across Media & Entertainment
• The Global Approach to the ME-ISAC
• Why Information Security Isn’t Somebody Else’s Problem
• A Cultural Revolution: Content Security vs. Information Security
Presented by Richey May Technology Solutions, with sponsorship by Akamai, Cyberhaven, Microsoft Azure, SHIFT, and the Trusted Partner Network (TPN), the event will feature
on the latest cybersecurity and content protection challenges studios, broadcasters and vendors alike are facing during the ongoing pandemic.
Produced under the direction of the CDSA Board of Directors and content advisors representing Amazon Studios, Adobe, Paramount, BBC Studios, NBCUniversal, Lionsgate, WarnerMedia, Amblin Entertainment, Legendary Pictures, and Lego Group, this year’s Cybersecurity & Content Protection Summit will also look ahead at the challenges facing the security community in 2020 and beyond.
