Crisis Turned Catalyst: Content Protection Summit Returns — Virtually — Dec. 8

After the onset of the pandemic, media and entertainment teams scrambled to facilitate a full work-from-home reality, from upending previously established workflows, to adoption of new tools to enable remote collaboration and production. And that required a reevaluation of how the industry approaches cybersecurity and content protection.

Months later, now that the industry isn’t simply scrambling to react, those in the business of content protection and cybersecurity have not only kept pace, but discovered innovative ways of keeping workflows and assets secure along the way.

On Dec. 8 from 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. PT, the top security and asset protection minds in the industry will gather virtually for the Content Protection Summit. Produced by the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), the event will dive into the successes — and failures — discovered in business continuity plans; how new, remote workflows have been secured; the ways cloud and storage services are being further locked down for productions; and the new threats that continue to emerge to your intellectual property.

Attendees of the event will hear from experts on crucial remote working M&E security topics surrounding protecting against insider threats, standards for remote access, the importance of security assessments, and more.

Sponsored by SHIFT, the event will be produced by MESA, 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.
