Fortium Technologies to participate in 2 expert panel discussions at IBC’s C-Tech Cyber Security Programme

FortiumFortium Technologies, a leading developer of digital file security solutions for the media and entertainment industry has decided to participate in two expert panel discussions at IBC’s C-Tech Cyber Security Programme.

The invitation-only event to be held from September 14 to18 is to be held in association with IBC 2017 at the RAI in Amsterdam.

Fortium Technologies CEO Mathew Gilliat-Smith will join other industry leaders for a discussion on Cyber Governance entitled Taking the Right Steps.

“Cybercrime is on the increase and is here to stay. Piracy can occur at any point in the digital supply chain and a security breach will lead to significant financial loss, disrupts roll-out plans and potentially causes lasting damage to a company’s reputation,” said Smith. “Organizations need to constantly review the changing threats and budget for the cost of using the proper tools and protocols to defend against and stay ahead of hackers.”

Panelists will review case studies and discuss what can be done to avoid the same mistakes. They will outline security measures that companies in the broadcast industry must take to avoid becoming victims of hackers…and what measures to have in place if a security breach occurs.

The session is scheduled on September 15. The session host will be Michael McEwen, Director General, North American Broadcasters Association (NABA).
