09:35 - Why doesn't supply chain go from glass to glass?

The phrase 'supply chain' often conjures up a defined set of workflows around content processing and fulfilment. But why don't we apply supply chain thinking to the whole media value chain, from production to distribution?

Achieving and maintaining security assessments can be an expensive full time job. Managing content and infrastructure security is daunting, yet industry conversations are often banal rather than practical. How can the industry come together to make the process easier and cheaper?
