Produced by MESA and CDSA, Panel to Feature Top Executives from 20th Century Fox, Deluxe Digital Studios and Adobe Discussing Innovative Approaches to Securing the Global Movement of High-Value Digital Media

BURLINGTON, MA (June 28, 2012) — Produced by Media & Entertainment Strategy Advisors (MESA) in association with the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), Signiant will host a Webcast titled “Locking Down Digital Content Security” on Tuesday, July 10, at 11 a.m. PDT. The moderated, one-hour panel will feature a discussion with top security executives from Fox Entertainment Group and Deluxe Digital Studios, two of the world’s largest and most globally dispersed media companies, on their own innovative approaches to managing secure media exchanges in private, public and hybrid cloud environments.

MESA Executive Director Guy Finley will moderate the panel, which will include Jeff Dow, Senior Vice President, Information Security and Infrastructure, Fox Entertainment Group; Joel Bigley, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Operations and Business Execution, Deluxe Digital Studios; Richard Atkinson, Director, Worldwide Anti-Piracy, Adobe; and Ian Hamilton, Chief Technology Officer, Signiant.

“In digital production environments, media enterprises of all types have one thing in common: the requirement to move very large content files between business partners rapidly, securely and in a carefully controlled fashion,” said Hamilton. “The advent of globally dispersed supply chains, multiplatform workflow complexities and shrinking distribution windows has spurred the need for greater content security and differentiated levels of service for users inside and outside of the media organization — at user, system and network levels. Safeguarding media assets against security breaches without jeopardizing the benefits of seamless media exchanges requires a thorough understanding of how cloud technologies work.”

“Locking Down Digital Content Security” is ideal for senior executives and directors of content security, technology, operations and media services. Target operations include studios, postproduction facilities, digital media services, broadcast TV, cable networks, game publishers, and other content owners and distributors.
