4th Annual MESA Europe Content Protection Summit Announced

Published October 3, 2017

Now in its fourth year, the MESA Europe Content Protection Summit will once again focus on providing a detailed update on the content and data security issues that the industry now faces and will look at the measures and technologies that can be employed to minimise security risks. This all day event will feature informed speakers and panellists from across the content community, together with their distribution and workflow partners, who will share their views, experiences and details of the solutions adopted in the battle to protect against content and data theft. Legal and security specialists will also contribute to the discussion.

“Data and Content Security is an essential component across all sectors of the media and entertainment industry, with the need for tight and secure end-to-end systems and processes never more important to have in place, and equally, never more challenging to maintain” said David Millar, Director of Communications at MESA Europe. “For our members, Advisory Boards and the various specialist industry groups we work with, this is a constant front of mind topic” he added.

“Last year’s event attracted a significant increase in interest and given the current environment, some pending legislative changes and the growing risk of cyber-attack, all the indications are that this year’s Summit will be even bigger” said Jim Bottoms, Executive Director at MESA Europe. ”As a result we are moving to a larger venue this year and are delighted with the industry response and the people who are committed to participate”.

Among the topics to be addressed at the Content Protection Summit will be:

  • Understanding the Myths and Realities of Security Threats
  • Protecting Live Sports Content – Is the Battle Being Won?
  • Why is Blockchain relevant?
  • Building and Maintaining a Security Aware Company Ethos
  • Ransomware is Now the Biggest Threat – Do we Have to Pay the Price?
  • Security Technology Update – Staying Ahead of the Game
  • The Challenge of Protecting Rights
  • Preparing for GDPR
  • Your Content has been Stolen- What Now?
  • Identifying Workflow Vulnerabilities and Plugging the Gaps
  • Where are we with Watermarking?
  • Security in 4K Workflows
  • Cloud Security – Do Concerns Remain?

The MESA Europe Content Protection Summit will take place in London on 15th November.
