M+E Connections

Richey May Technology Talks Virtual Desktops at Feb. 25 CWMF

At the 25 Feb. Content Workflow Management Forum, “M&E’s Premiere Localisation Event,” JT Gaietto, executive director of cybersecurity for Richey May Technology Solutions, will bring a bit a humor to a serious challenge media and entertainment faced this past year: finding the right tools to work remotely.

His presentation — “Hollywood Stays Home in 2021” — will run through the challenges and trends his company witnessed in 2020 working with studios, post houses, and creatives in the industry, and how the trend of virtual desktops means learning new tricks with an old concept.

“Will be discussing how companies are looking to leverage desktops-as-a-service (DaaS) and other cloud workflows to keep their businesses moving,” Gaietto said.

Last year saw our computers going from something we checked email on and worked from to becoming full gateways of all kinds of personal and confidential information, opening up our eyes to the fact that how we work is just as important as what we are working on, due to the increased risk surrounding that information. Gaietto will share what lessons M&E needs to take from what we experienced in 2020 into 2021 and onward.
