OPENING KEYNOTE: Securing Healthcare’s Digital Front Door
In this exciting opening keynote, we’ll set the stage for the days conversations and explore another vibrant business category from a content perspective, healthcare and how they are handling security and strident regulations. Our Keynote speaker, who leads a technology company that empowers patients to actively care for their health, will share insights on why her company is often referred to as the “OTT for Healthcare”. As one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies ( 2020 Inc. 5000 list) Mytonomy, is building virtual patient relationships in a secure environment with micro learning video content. This presentation discusses how they are delivering content in a highly regulated environment and facilitating those security requirements through their media studio.
Anjali Kataria, Chief Executive Officer, Mytonomy Inc.

10:30 – 11 a.m.
Physical Security in a Digital World
Cybersecurity and content protection are imperative but protecting people and physical assets are important too. A big question for studios right now is the fact that the assets and resources to accomplish both these challenges are different and require their own assessments. There is a clear need in the wider industry for a dedicated standard for physical security of productions to be aligned with and synergistic with existing content protection guidelines. In this session, we will look at the fundamentals that need to land in our rapidly changing environment as we begin to return back to physical sets in the middle of the pandemic and get ready for the world to open up again in the latter part of 2021.

CLOSING KEYNOTE: An Update on the Human Dimension of Security
Our Closing Keynote revisits his talk from last year’s CPS where he explored the human dimension of security. He posited, in the highest-reviewed session in the history of CDSA, that no data system is perfect, with human behavior presenting the biggest security risk. Coming back to our stage after the emergence of the global pandemic, he will review the impact of the crisis and how dealing with insider threats make the human side of your organization more secure. As the former Director of R&D at The NSA and Associate Director on National Intelligence we will discuss the evolution of organizational behavior and blind spots in human perception of threats and risks in particular relation to the ongoing crisis.

Special Session: [email protected] – The Changing Role Of Women In Security
As content protection becomes a more digital challenge and cybersecurity drives digital transformation in the security sector, more opportunities are being created for diverse security workforces. Technology companies are also focusing on creating gender-diversity in the workplace with the added benefit of having the security industry itself be more representative of the community it serves. And as always, a diversified team means more creative ideas, more innovation, and better adaptability to the rapidly changing. In this session, we will hear from female studio technology leadership on what it’s going to take to create and “secure” a more diverse content protection workforce.
