CPS EU: Closing Panel to Discuss Collaboration Against Threats

The links between data and risk are inextricable, and if the past year has taught the media and entertainment industry anything, there’s no one-size-fits-all risk mitigation strategy to tackle cybersecurity and content protection, no matter where in the world you are.

But what if it was possible to establish a holistic approach, which crosses all borders, stands collectively against threats, and takes into account the return-to-office issues the industry is now dealing with?

At the June 29 Content Protection Summit Europe (CPS EU) event, a panel of experts will discuss that possibility, as well new advances in technologies, including DRM, watermarking, geolocation and geo-blocking, in the closing conversation of the day, “A Global Perspective of Shared Challenges … and Solutions.”

The panel will examine how, in the absence of consistency throughout multi-regional enterprises, data theft and pirating have flourished, with consumers worldwide unknowingly purchasing content that has been illegally obtained. The technology exists to tackle the problem, but how do we ensure everyone — especially vendor partners — meet the required security standards?

Caroline Baines, client services director for MESA, will lead the discussion around these topics with Aaron Freer, director of information security EMEA for Sony Pictures Entertainment,
Lee Kent, content protection manager for beIN Media Group, and Chris Vinall, Content and Platform Security Specialist, BT.

Content Protection Summit Europe is presented by Convergent Risks, with sponsorship by Richey May Technology Solutions, Synamedia, BuyDRM, Friend MTS, NAGRA, X Cyber Group and Xcapism Learning. The event is produced by MESA, the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), the Hollywood IT Society (HITS) and Women in Technology Hollywood (WiTH), under the direction of the CDSA board of directors and content advisors representing Amazon Studios, Adobe, Paramount, BBC Studios, NBCUniversal, Lionsgate, WarnerMedia, Amblin Entertainment, Legendary Pictures, and Lego Group.
