The threat of ransomware attacks and other cybersecurity threats are compelling media companies to overhaul their broadcast technology and speed the transition to IP. Technology/security executives from four leading companies will share their experiences with that process in Security and the Road to Modernizing Broadcast Technology, a panel at 9 a.m. on Oct. 18 at TVNewsCheck’s Cybersecurity for Broadcasters Retreat.

Paul Capizzi, CIO and SVP of technology, Fox Corp.; Mike Kelley, CISO, The E.W. Scripps Co.; Mike Palmer, senior director of media management, Sinclair Broadcast Group; and John Naylor, director of product security, Ross Video, will participate in the discussion moderated by Palmer.

The leaders will look at how companies are designing the technology workflows of the future and what kinds of investments are necessary to do so. They’ll consider whether CEOs fully understand they level of need and strategies to best convince them of that need as they hash through challenges, strategies and timetables on this critical issue.

“Ransomware attacks have become such a threat to corporations globally that they are pushing media and entertainment companies to accelerate their transition from hardware to software and from on-prem into the cloud,” said TVNewsCheck Publisher and Co-Founder Kathy Haley. “This panel will address what the industry needs to do to make this move more quickly to protect itself from ransomware attacks.”

The Cybersecurity for Broadcasters Retreat will run Oct. 17-18 at the Javits Center in New York City as part of the NAB New York Show.
