“Security by design” will be the overarching theme of the second Media Cybersecurity Seminar held 16-17 October at EBU headquarters in Geneva. The event combines conference session with hands-on tutorials, covering a range of topics relevant to media security such as content piracy, data privacy, and cybersecurity for infrastructures and outside events.

The event assembles a series of high profile speakers, among them KPMG Switzerland Head of Cybersecurity Matthias Brossardt, who will give an overview of the major threats and trends in cybersecurity in 2018. Eoghan Keary, Founder of Edgescan and member of the OWASP, will explain how cybersecurity can be integrated in agile software development workflows. 

BBC cybersecurity experts Ben Thornton and his colleagues explain what cybersecurity measures should be followed by media organisation at outside events, why media organisation should have a security operational center (SOC) and how to run one.

GDPR, AI and blockchain for security

With GDPR now in force, an expert panel moderated by renowned data privacy expert Sheila Fitzpatrick will gather and summarize key insight and lessons learned by relevant companies in their GDPR compliance efforts.

With its eyes firmly on the future, MCS will also address new security relevant technologies such as blockchain and its possible applications in IoT messaging, as well AI and how it could be leveraged to prevent, detect and protect against cyber attacks.

Earn CPE points and learn to think like a hacker

Participants at the Media Cybersecurity Seminar also have an opportunity to earn security training credits (CPEs), which count towards the ISC2 and ISACA certifications. A hands-on hacking session led by VRT security expert Gerben Dierick familiarizes participants with some of the more common approaches, while the Cloud Security Alliance gives participants an overview of the ins and outs of security measures for internet-based services.
