Meeting: Cybersecurity in Broadcasting

Date: 18:30-21:30 Wed 25th October 2017
Location, Pincents Manor, There, RG31 4UQ | Map

RTS Thames Valley proudly presents an illuminating evening discussing the highly topical and relevant subject of Cybersecurity with the broadcast and media community. With General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) just around the corner, broadcasters increasingly embracing file delivery (DPP, IMF, etc.) and going headlong into Live IP solutions (ST 2110, IS-04/5/6) are we leaving ourselves wide-open for hacking?
We have two very well connected speakers, one from a Corporate IT outsource company (Ramsac) and the other from one of the UK’s major broadcasters (Arqiva).
Robert May will discuss the subject from the Corporate Network aspect, covering all essential good practice and encouraging us to prepare for GDPR, which will be law on May 25, 2018.
Denis Onuoha will cover the broadcasters more specific concerns – from Cloud-based delivery through to staff using USB sticks on the playout system! With the world’s media becoming an ever-increasing target to hackers, are we just making ourselves even more vulnerable moving to IP?
