Top Security Execs To Tackle Reducing Risk
A panel of senior television industry security executives will discuss the 10 most important steps media companies can take to reduce cybersecurity risk this year at TVNewsCheck’s second annual Cybersecurity for Broadcasters Retreat.
Stephen Fridakis, chief information and security officer at HBO, will join Mike Kelly, chief information and security officer at E.W. Scripps; George Ressopoulos, VP of the Cyber Defense Organization at NBC Universal; and Shane Keats, director of industry marketing for media and entertainment at Akamai, on a panel discussion set for Thursday, Feb. 21, at 9 a.m. at the Hyatt Grand Cypress Hotel in Orlando, Fla. Anne Kuhns, retired chief information and security officer at Walt Disney Co., will moderate.
“Media companies are targeted more frequently by cybercriminals than are companies in other industries,” said Kathy Haley, co-founder and publisher of NewsCheckMedia, which produces the Cybersecurity for Broadcasters Retreat. “We are extremely fortunate to be able to open the second day of CBR 2019 with advice from these important security leaders,”
The second annual Cybersecurity for Broadcasters Retreat will take place Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 20-21, at the Hyatt Grand Cypress hotel in Orlando. It will open Wednesday with a two-hour Incident Response Simulation designed to train attendees to react calmly and effectively to an escalating security breach.
CBR 2019 will also include educational sessions, including “Managing Security in the Cloud,” “Bridging the Gap Between Engineering and IT” and “10 Security Best Practices for Broadcasters.” There will also be two fireside chats, one offering an overview of emerging threats and new security tools and the other updating attendees on security protocols for the ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard.
In addition, there are Private Information Exchanges, where IT, security and technology executives, managers and professionals can discuss common concerns in a highly confidential environment.
