Securing the Future of Media & Entertainment
As media & entertainment accelerates its digital transformation on the back of a range of new technologies (5G, IP Delivery, ATSC 3.0), how are policymakers and engineers planning to protect these emerging systems, and what are the new threats and vulnerabilities that increased interactivity and interconnectivity will produce?

Setting the Standards and Systems for Securing Media & Entertainment
Our opening session sets the stage for the afternoon’s conference agenda by highlighting both the individual work and the increased collaboration of industry associations and their members. As entertainment moves toward a more fluid, instant and “always on” infrastructure, these groups play a critical role in how we tackle these increasingly challenging workflows and distribution models, together, with a foundation of infrastructure security that speaks across all of our memberships.
Moderator: Guy Finley, Executive Director, Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA)

Looking Ahead to Next-Generation Piracy
The piracy landscape is evolving. A new generation of P2P applications with good UX, blockchain apps that provide more secure and more anonymous monetization of content, plus new challenges posed by IPV6—all offer new opportunities for pirates and new concerns for content protection.

Securing Next Gen TV
The current work on the 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.

Trusted Partner Network: Year One
One year ago, here at NAB, The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA) launched a new industry-wide, content security initiative: The Trusted Partner Network (TPN), to elevate the security standards of the film & television industry’s production and distribution supply chain. TPN Board Members take the stage to provide a One-Year Update on how its site security program has progressed and what’s in store for securing core technologies for media & entertainment.

Securing Film and Television Productions
The first Content & Cybersecurity Guidelines for protecting film & television productions against cyber and physical theft has been released by the Content Delivery and Security Association (CDSA), which contains everything every producer and crew member needs to know to secure their intellectual property on-set or on-location. The Guidelines were written by a Working Group of executives from Amazon Studios, Amblin Entertainment, AMC, Bad Robot, BBC, Fox, Paramount, Marvel, Netflix, NBCUniversal, Turner, Walt Disney, and Warner Bros., in cooperation with contributing members of the Producers Guild of America (PGA).
