As media networks increasingly migrate to using IP-based systems, the question of how to ensure security of signals and networks is a major consideration. Without good security practices, content can be stolen, broadcasts can be interrupted, and network devices can be damaged.
Ensuring security is not only about technology. Choosing the right policies can be essential – things that work well for a bank may not be appropriate for a media organization. Rules and practices need to be developed for anyone with access to a network and these rules need to be followed. Procedures for
investigating and dealing with suspected intrusions need to be documented and rehearsed with key employees.
In this webinar, we will cover many of the key security concerns and current techniques for assessing, developing, implementing and monitoring security practices for media systems.
Topics will include:
- Physical Network Security
- Internal and External network connections
- Signal Security/Encryption
- Human Security Factors/Training
- Risk Assessment
