Although broadcasters have always taken security seriously due to the high value media assets they work with, the rapid adoption of IP is bringing cybersecurity into the limelight as criminals have the potential to hack networks from the other side of the world, often without their victim’s knowledge.

IP provides untold opportunities for broadcasters with its delivery of flexibility, scalability, and resilience, but it also has weaknesses, especially if security is not built into the infrastructure from the start of the design. Broadcast facilities are a prime target for a whole plethora of criminals from hostile state actors to terrorists, and even somebody looking to cause disruption just because they can. Understanding the threat is a full-time job, and that’s before we even start building and maintaining secure systems. 

This colloquium, provided by the RTS Technology Centre, and sponsored by IMG, digs deep into the concept of cybersecurity to help broadcasters understand the challenges they face and how to overcome them.
