Security executives from Tegna Media, Graham Media, KQED San Francisco and Sinclair Broadcast Group will share their list of the 10 best security practices for broadcasters at TVNewsCheck’s annual Cybersecurity for Broadcasters Retreat next month.
The journalists at San Francisco’s public TV and radio station, KQED, have been stuck in a time warp. All Internet-connected devices, tools and machinery have been cut off in an attempt to isolate and contain a ransomware attack that infected the station’s computers June 15. More than a month later, many remain offline.
The annual IRE Awards recognize outstanding investigative work and help identify the techniques and resources used to complete each story. Among the winners are KTRK Houston, KQED San Francisco and WVUE New Orleans.
