Business continuity plans have been activated, production editing at home is the new normal, and absolutely everyone’s video conferencing. As for whether all of that is secure, though, remains to be seen.
That’s the message Michael Wylie, director of cybersecurity services for Richey May Technology Solutions, will bring to the forefront May 12 during his presentation at the annual Cybersecurity & Content Protection Summit, being held digitally as part of the NAB Show Express experience.
“I’ll be sharing what the Richey May Technology Solutions cybersecurity team has seen on the front lines of protecting people, processes, technology, and content over the past few weeks of the ‘stay at home’ order, and how some of these lessons learned from clients could save attendees from making similar mistakes,” Wylie said of his presentation, “Security Implication of ‘Work from Home’: The Year of Breaches.”
It’s already been a year of unforeseen security challenges, and the ongoing integration of remote collaboration solutions has forced cybersecurity and content protection teams to stay on their toes. Security teams need to stay focused on how they protect people, processes and technology, Wylie said, and plan now for COVID-19 exit strategy.
“Our cybersecurity team has taken telemetry from customers and sources all over the internet to build one of the world’s largest and free aggregates of COVID-19 Indicators of Compromise (IOC), updated in real-time for the community,” he said. “Attendees will be provided with access to the COVID-19 IOC database for free in efforts to help protect their people, process, technology, and content.”
Presented by Richey May Technology Solutions, with sponsorship by Akamai, Cyberhaven, Microsoft Azure, SHIFT, Convergent Risks and the Trusted Partner Network (TPN), the Cybersecurity & Content Protection Summit will focus 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 Content Delivery & Security Association (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.
