CPS 2019: Evolution of Community in Security to be Addressed

The 10th annual Content Protection Summit (CPS) Dec. 4 in Los Angeles will see leaders from Hollywood studios, TV networks and the content production community examine what it takes today to build trust in an industry constantly challenged with piracy and cyber threats.

The day-long program at the Sheraton Universal will tackle everything from changing content and information security requirements to securing workflows and the cloud, and will see studio executives, streaming giants and Hollywood’s top vendors share their insights on how they’re improving their security postures, and responding to threats that target data and applications.

Following welcome remarks from Kai Pradel, CEO of SHIFT, board members of the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA) will set the stage for the day, discussing what incidents and emerging trends and threats the industry is facing on a daily basis, and what the next 12 months will look like.

That panel will be followed by the opening keynote of the day — “How to Achieve World Class Security (Hint: It Isn’t Technology)” — from Dr. Eric Haseltine, chairman of the board for the U.S. Technology Leadership Council, where he’ll look at the human dimension of security, and argue that no data system will ever be perfect with human behavior presenting the biggest security risk.

Following an examination of how a platform used by multiple content owner companies was compromised earlier this year (in the SHIFT discussion “Anatomy of a Leak”), Joe Daniel, senior solutions architect for NAGRA, will look at the pros and cons of client-side watermarking vs. server-side watermarking in his presentation “Forensic Watermarking as Key Pillar of Anti-Piracy Strategy.”

After Andrew Lemke, North America cyber resiliency technical solution leader for IBM shares insights into the unique challenges added by cloud environments (and how to integrate the solutions to those challenges into your security program) in the presentation “Secure Journey to the Cloud: Part 1,” attendees will have a choice between three breakout tracks: compliance and security, cloud security and software and watermarking.

Following a networking lunch, Anthony Sahakian, CEO of Quantum Integrity, will take the stage for the afternoon keynote, “Business in The Age of Manipulation,” a deep dive into the world of deepfakes, and an examination of how the tools used for deepfakes can also be used to detect them.

Next, “Building Trust in Production Security” will look at how MovieLabs and its studio participants are offering key security principles as a foundation for a cloud-native security architecture. That will be followed by the presentation “Tackling Scale at Netflix with an Embedded Security Model.”

The main stage program will close with the panel “Government Resources to Protect Your Networks,” where industry experts from the Department of Homeland Security, the L.A. Cyber Lab, and the ME-ISAC will shed a light on the resources available from their respective agencies that can help you improve your security, and better defend against common threats from the internet.

Attendees will then be able to choose between the Women in Technology Hollywood’s (WiTH) workshop, “Competencies for Success,” or the CDSA workshop, before the day concludes with the Media & Entertainment Services Alliance’s (MESA) annual holiday party.

The Content Protection Summit is produced by MESA and CDSA, and is presented by SHIFT, with sponsorship by IBM Security, NAGRA, Convergent Risks, LiveTiles, Richey May Technology Solutions, EIDR, the Trusted Partner Network (TPN) and Darktrace.
