Creative Vs. Security: Getting on the Same Side of the Struggle
We’re all on the same side when it comes to content security. The same monitoring you have across your cloud-enabled enterprise also applies to how users engage and interact with available technology platforms and existing workflows. Leaks have a financial impact throughout the production, from the corporate headquarters to the set. However, those who create and produce our industry’s content and those who are responsible for protecting its value are often talking “different languages” when it comes to security. This panel discussion gathers security and technology execs to talk about “getting on the same page” when it comes to content protection.
Moderator: Lulu Zezza, Founder, One-Simple and Treasurer, CDSA
Panelists: Jeff Blair, Chief Information Security Officer, Creative Artists Agency (CAA)
Kowsik Guruswamy, Chief Technology Officer, Menlo Security
Janice Pearson, Director, Content Protection Strategy & Operations, Warner Bros. Entertainment
Harrie Tholen, Managing Director and Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, NexGuard


12:15 – 12:30 p.m. on Dec. 6th:
Kodi Brings Pirated Content to the Big Screen – How to Overcome the Challenge
With torrent usage plummeting from 23% of internet traffic in 2011 to under 5% last year, Kodi has taken over the mantle of piracy and brought illegal content from the dorm room to the living room. This session will explore the origins of Kodi, map out its software and hardware eco-system and discuss the particular challenges in tackling Kodi piracy. We will explain how the growing adoption of Kodi impacts content owners world-wide and what can be done do to effectively manage the threat.
David Würgler, Senior Director Anti-Piracy Litigation, NAGRA


4:15 – 4:45 p.m. on Dec. 6th:
Winning the Piracy Wars: Strategies for Protecting your OTT Content
There is a large shift happening in the pay-TV space fueled in part by the proliferation of new OTT services. And this trend is not showing signs of slowing down any time soon, evident by the large number of content owners and pay-TV operators launching their own direct-to-consumer online video services to compete with popular streaming providers. But as OTT continues to gain in popularity, it is also a prime target for pirates who have been early adopters of streaming and are now also benefiting from a more mature and consumer-friendly technology. In this session, we examine this changing landscape and what service and content providers can do to protect their OTT services against piracy. In combination with monitoring and take-down services, tools such as watermarking have been optimized for streaming, resulting in an environment where anti-piracy measures can be particularly effective.
Mark Nakano, Senior Director Product Marketing and Partnerships, NexGuard
