Video Security Summit Goes Virtual Oct. 19-20

The 2021 Video Security Summit — geared toward executives, managers and industry stakeholders who need the latest on content piracy and the threat it poses across the media and entertainment ecosystem — will take place Oct. 19-20 as a fully virtual event.

A multi-billion-dollar industry that steals from movie studios, broadcasters, pay TV operators, creative professionals, producers and advertisers alike, piracy is also taking advantage of consumers via apps and web sites they trust every day, as well as the infrastructure used to deliver services.

Over the course of two days, attendees of the Video Security Summit will learn how piracy is undermining the ability of media and entertainment stakeholders to sustain their businesses, and how to go about stopping pirates and confronting the methods they use.

Day one of the event will centre around recognizing piracy and playing offense against it. Attendees will learn about the theft of valuable content and services, service infrastructure, software and apps, advertising, and “the theft of you.”

Day two revolves around recognizing and addressing vulnerabilities in infrastructure and setting up barriers against attack, at every level of the media supply chain.

Each day’s presentation will last three hours, with a full line-up of sessions and speakers to be announced soon.

Registration is free through Oct. 5, $49 Oct. 6-12, and $99 beginning Oct. 13.

The Video Security Summit is presented by Piracy Monitor and nScreenMedia, with sponsorship by Akamai, Friend MTS, Synamedia, GeoComply, and Viaccess-Orca, in association with the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA). The event will be produced by MESA.
