November 25, 2015 · Posted in M&E Daily, M&E Exclusive · Comments Off on CPS Keynote: Traditional Security Measures ‘Aren’t Working’ 

By Chris Tribbey

It’s almost a no-win situation for content companies today: while the Internet is an essential tool for business, the second anyone opens up a browser they can expose the company to everything from malware to exploitive downloads, cyber security breaches that can bring even the biggest of studios to its knees.

True, the editing side of film and TV productions has become smarter, creating isolated production networks to move content around to those who need it. But with every new security wall content companies put in place, there are people quickly working to break it down, according to Brendan Spikes, founder and CEO of network security firm Spikes Security, and former CIO of SpaceX.
