Fortinet Examines Evolving Workplaces, Securing Content at Dec. 6 CPS

The closing conversation of the day at the Dec. 6 Content Protection Summit (CPS) in Los Angeles will see an important message from John Jacobs, field CISO for Fortinet: securing today’s evolving workplaces demands an entirely new approach.

During Jacobs’ discussion with Richard Atkinson, president of the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), attendees will hear how a leading visual effects organization achieved clear business benefits by modernizing its approach to today’s work-from-everywhere workforce. The example will offer proof that it’s possible to have consistent security from the perimeter edge to the cloud, while simplifying operations and obtaining the data intelligence needed for AI and ML to drive better user experiences.

Earlier in the day, Jacobs will deliver the presentation “Delivering Content Securely with Speed and at Scale? Yes You Can!” where he’ll share how the media and entertainment industry is at an inflection point, with content volume and distribution methods exploding. Consumers and fans demand more and more of their favorites, while content creators struggle with a solid strategy to provide the goods. Jacobs will discuss whether it is possible to have all three.

From challenges within the content supply chain to design and deployment choices have yielded the best results and hold the most future promise. Selecting all three options — speed, security and scale — can ensure profitable growth as the new measure.

The CPS event will be the premiere gathering of the top security and asset protection minds in the M&E industry. Held in-person in Los Angeles, and virtually in the MESAverse, MESA’s virtual work environment for its members and communities, the full-day event at the Skirball Center will see industry stakeholders mingle with counterparts, demo the latest offerings from top Hollywood vendors, and watch presentations, with an emphasis on content protection in a virtual production era.

Keynotes, panel discussions, and technology showcases are designed to offer senior-level content and information security experts the key information around the latest in content protection across the entire supply chain for entertainment. Production security, post-production workflows and the growing ecosystems of platforms and connectivity that are driving the secure content creation and distribution process. Additionally, anti-piracy and IP protection will be covered as our industry works collaboratively to secure our most important assets.

Presented by Fortinet and produced by MESA, CDSA’s Content Protection Summit is sponsored by Convergent Risks, Richey May Technology Solutions, GeoComply, Signiant, Verimatrix, Shift Media, EIDR and EZDRM.
