October is Content Protection Month!
In October, CDSA introduced Content Protection Month to our industry as a companion to National Cybersecurity Month. The initiative was led by NBCUniversal who have grown their internal “Content Protection Day” into a whole week by holding events in Los Angeles, London, Philadelphia and Miami. This session looks at how your company can promote community with a heightened awareness and culture of content security by hosting these informational and educational events.

State of the ME-ISAC
An update to members on the current state of the ME-ISAC regarding the services and information we provide to members. In operation for less than a year, but we have already come so very far. The Internet is a scary place. Yet we are shifting more and more services to the cloud, requiring Internet access even as part of production workflows. The only way we can operate such critical processes over such inhospitable terrain is by knowing what the threats are and avoiding them. The way we find out about these threats is via information sharing. The ISAC provides the platform and means for secure and timely collaboration about threats, risks, vulnerabilities, and incidents between members of the media and entertainment industry.

The Evolution of Content and Information Security
Protecting content is an evolving challenge as the entire media ecosystem is quickly migrating to cloud infrastructure. Content security and information security have intersected for a number of years, mostly depending upon how much of your business/creative workflow or infrastructure is enterprise or cloud-based. Cloud implementation in content workflow sees these teams working to build the processes and skills necessary to maintain control of these content and distribution workflows. The complexity increases with the increasing availability of new tools and services that solve a practical or immediate business need for the business or creative user. As new applications become the “go-to” options, it is increasingly important for companies to deploy a workflow for onboarding and managing these services. This session discusses new approaches to this federated workflow.
