The media industry’s business network


Securing Creativity

Securing Creativity makes cyber security in the media industry real by bringing producers and security specialists together to talk about the realities of keeping content, contributors and consumers safe.

Every single day production companies and their suppliers handle vast amounts of highly sensitive information on the people who take part, make and consume their content. One security breach could destroy that trust, ruin people’s lives and destroy a company’s reputation.

So what does the production community do to minimise risk while maximising creativity?

High quality speakers, practical information and quality networking make this an essential DPP members only event for media professionals with security in their portfolio.

Programme includes:

08.30 – 09.30 Breakfast and networking

09.30 – 11.10 Session One

Alice Webb, Director, BBC Children’s and Education, BBC
Making Children’s Content Safe
BBC Children’s and Education is one of the world’s oldest and largest producers of children’s programming. It is seen as the benchmark for child-safe content. So how does it ensure the safety of their young contributors, presenters and audiences? This special keynote provides unique insight into the operation of this prestigious BBC production division.

Simon McDougall, Executive Director, Technology and Innovation, ICO
Can personalisation and privacy co-exist?
ICO is tackling some of the most complex challenges in the use of personal data. This presentation asks the key question: ‘How can you analyse or share the personal data of an individual without compromising the rights of that person?’ It explores how privacy enhancing technologies, anonymisation, and data sharing arrangements have to play, and how data controllers, data scientists, and others can navigate the use of personal data in their products and services.

James Archer, Privacy Champion, ITV Studios
Keeping Reality Private
Love Island and 24 Hours in A&E are just two examples of the hugely popular shows made by ITV Studios. But these, and other reality TV and fly-on-the-wall documentaries, pose huge and unique privacy challenges. Find out what those challenges are and how ITV Studios supports individual productions tackling privacy issues.

Rajan Kapoor, Director of Security, Dropbox
How Secure is your Supplier?
Incentivised bug hunting programmes for finding vulnerabilities are well known within the security field, but they aren’t as well understood by IT decision makers at non-cloud companies. This session explores what bug bounty programmes are, and why they are now critical when determining if the cloud providers that productions wish to work with are taking the right steps to protect production data.

11.10-11.30 Coffee Break

11.30 – 13.00 Session Two

Erik Rutkens, MD, Eurofins Cyber Security
Abdul Hakim, Programme Delivery Manager, DPP
How Companies are Committing to Media Security: The Inside Story
More than forty companies have now joined the DPP Committed to Security Programme. In the process they have documented how they are going about creating secure environments for themselves and their customers.

Those self-assessment submissions represent invaluable insight into the priorities and processes of security-aware companies. In this session we look – in anonymised form – at some of the key trends and themes that have emerged from the Programme, and how they reflect the distinctive challenges of securing media. We’ll also compare these outcomes with those from other industries for a more objective appraisal of cyber security globally.

Rainer A. Kellerhals, Managing Director, Media & Communications EMEA, Microsoft,
Paul Thompson, Director Strategic Solutions, Avid
Marco Rota, Global Technical Strategist, Walt Disney Company
Securing a studio in the cloud
Avid and Microsoft have recently been working with a major content producer to create a huge cloud based production system. In this special session they will provide unique insight into how they ensured the security of content for this world famous brand – and what that means for how we think about content security in the future.

Deep Fakes: Detection or Authentication?
As cyber activists and criminals gain more and more access to sophisticated software tools, the risks posed by fake content grow – and so does the potential impact.

So what is the best form of defence – to develop means of detecting fake content or detecting authentic content? Our unmissable final session, featuring a live demo, shares the latest research on fake creation, as well as news on an important international collaboration on authentication.
