Founded in 1970, the Content Delivery and Security Association (CDSA) is the worldwide forum advocating the innovative and responsible delivery and storage of entertainment, software, and information content. For over ten years content service providers have agreed to undergo site audits by CDSA’s industry experts to benchmark their preparedness in content protection and security. Today, the world’s leading motion picture, home video, music, software and games companies recognize and reward CDSA accredited sites for their commitment to protecting their content.
The Hollywood IT Society (HITS) is a community of IT technologists representing the Hollywood studios, independent content creators and their supporting information technology partners. HITS embraces the entire entertainment industry consisting of movie studios, TV networks and home entertainment divisions, video game publishers and music labels.

The Society – the professional organization behind the annual Summits – is at the forefront of emerging developments in smart content, digital supply chain, content protection and next-gen entertainment experiences.
Managed by Media & Entertainment Services Alliance (MESA), HITS has expanded its ranks to include offices and operations in Hollywood, New York and London. HITS produces both the Spring and Fall Hollywood IT Summits in Los Angeles, the Broadcast IT Summit in New York City and contributes thought leadership to the conferences and events across all of MESA’s communities.
