The Content Delivery and Security Association (CDSA), a community within MESA, the Media and Entertainment Services Alliance, held the latest installment of its Content Protection Summit in early December, in Los Angeles.
A session led by the Chairman of the Board for the US Technology Leadership Council and Director of Research for the US National Security Agency (NSA) cited cybersecurity situations experienced by the US government that could be very instructive to Hollywood.
Other sessions highlighted security challenges that exist when sharing pre-release content during the production workflow process, the state of cloud security and the threats to security posed by people within an organization.
Also at the event, CDSA announced that the content security director for BBC Studios has been named as CDSA’s new chairman. Nagra presented an anti-collusion solution designed to take on attacks used by pirates to defeat forensic watermarks.
Why it’s important
MESA and CDSA are among the handful of organizations that create community around video content security and cybersecurity for the media and entertainment industries. These organizations are open to join, and should be on the list of partners for any video content or service provider that is serious about piracy and anti-piracy.
