How the Weather Channel Built Digital Trust
The primary function of information security is to establish trust. Internal trust for your employees, C Suite and Board, but more importantly you have to earn the external, or “Digital Trust” of your customers and business partners. They must trust you with their sensitive information, intellectual property and in many instances much more. Without this, your business cannot innovate, differentiate and grow. See how one global media, content and analytics organization, deployed a security program thorough enough to do just that.
Michael Klint Borozan, Worldwide Security Industry Leader, IBM Security
2:45 – 3 p.m.
Quantum Computing and the Future of Content Security
The opportunities that quantum computing holds for innovation in various industries is considerable but many don’t know what lies ahead. One focus area is encryption and security, and in particular how the entertainment industry approaches content protection in post-quantum encryption protocols. This session explains how to leverage quantum computing to provide unhackable encryption algorithms and extending this quantum technology to digital watermarking to prove authenticity, authorship, and the distribution method.
Mark Jackson, Scientific Lead of Business Development, Cambridge Quantum Computing

KEYNOTE: Is the Media & Entertainment Industry “Critical Infrastructure”?
Since the PATRIOT Act of 2001, critical infrastructure in the United States has been defined as “systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security.” In his thought-provoking keynote, Johnson discusses: (1) the cyber and disinformation threats that sophisticated nation-state intelligence services and criminal syndicates pose to modern media and entertainment, including film, radio and television, (2) why these industries might accurately be described as the “critical infrastructure” of First Amendment free expression and the public communications of our free markets and democratic government; and (3) what this tells us about the new partnerships and protections that the industry needs to defend against these threats.
Clete Johnson, Senior Fellow, Center for Strategic International Studies, (CSIS) and Partner, Wilkinson Barker Knauer
4 – 4:15 p.m.
Securing Next Gen TV
The current work on the ATSC 3.0 next-generation broadcast standard is meant to use advanced transmission and video/audio coding techniques to bring new and creative services to viewers. Conditional access and digital rights management (DRM) are core capabilities of this new TV system. How else are broadcast engineers and business officers hardening this new standard to provide a more secure, accountable system for content owners and their distribution partners.
Peter Van Peenen, Technology Consultant, Pearl TV
4:15 – 4:30 p.m.
Get it to the Cloud (Evolving Your Edit Pipeline)
You used to be able to air-gap your edit bay, but the scale and volume of content means you need geometrically more capacity. Where will you put it all? The logical answer is the cloud, but what does that do to your asset protection strategy? Learn how to secure your editorial environment to effectively enable cloud-scale workflows in both hybrid and cloud-native architectures, and allow editors to work from anywhere.
Joel Sloss, Senior Lead, Media & Entertainment – Security, Microsoft Azure

CLOSING KEYNOTE: Is that Real? The Threat & Opportunity of Deep Fakes
Technology has the potential to topple the truth.
