About the 2021 Video Security Summit
Hear the people on the front lines waging the offensive battle against pirates and defending service infrastructure from hackers. This first-of-its-kind online event brings together the extended family of anti-piracy allies from across the Media and Entertainment ecosystem.
Video piracy is a multi-billion-dollar industry that profits from the theft of valuable content and services, service infrastructure, software and apps, advertising, and from “the theft of you;” using a variety of business models. Not only does piracy undermine the ability of creative professionals, content providers, rights-holders, service providers, and others to sustain their businesses; It puts at risk their ability to provide the high-quality professionally produced content consumers demand.
Video services are attractive hacker targets as they hold valuable customer data and deliver valuable content. Popular customer-facing brands like Disney or Discovery present an almost irresistible challenge. Service security is a never-ending task as hackers exploit the latest technologies and vulnerabilities, and providers plug holes and beef up their defenses to hold them at bay.
