    • Deep Threat: Security Lessons from the Online Adult Entertainment Industry Deep Threat: Security Lessons from the Online Adult Entertainment Industry Richard Hollis, Director, Risk Factory Recorded: Mar 15 2016 12:00 pm UTC 42 mins
    • Gross revenues for the online adult entertainment industry exceeded $150 billion dollars last year from transactions conducted over more than 5 million websites offering adult content. Every second $3,075.64 is being spent on adult entertainment websites. The annual revenues from this industry alone exceed the top ten online companies in the world combined (Microsoft, Google, Amazon, E-Bay, Yahoo, Dell etc).

      This industry is credited for creating the very financial model used by virtually everyone doing business on the Internet today in addition to being primarily responsible for launching the very technologies we now come to expect from service providers from broadband to streaming media. This is an industry that understands the financial benefits of aligning their technology to their business objectives.

      The industry is also reputed to be the largest purveyor of SPAM, viruses, Trojans, worms, adware and spyware. This fact along with the product it sells and enormous revenue it generates make it an extremely high value target for crackers, fraudsters, organised crime and vigilante groups. And yet, we never hear about a breach to their systems do we? Why is that? What is their secret? What do they know about data security that other industries don’t?

      The presentation covers the statistics of the industry and then explains the ten basic information security principles that online adult entertainment providers implement to ensure the security integrity of their systems. The material is based upon actual case studies and interviews with Directors of online adult entertainment provider companies.

    • Digital Storage in Professional Media and Entertainment Digital Storage in Professional Media and Entertainment Thomas M. Coughlin, President, Coughlin Associates Recorded: Mar 10 2015 4:00 pm UTC 41 mins
    • Digital storage plays a significant role in the professional media and entertainment industry. Digital storage for the M&E industry has demand characteristics often very different from typical IT storage because of the performance requirements of real-time video in capture, editing and post-production, as well as distribution. On the other hand, the ever growing archive of long-tail digital content and increasing digitized historical analog content is swelling the demand for cold as well as warm archives using tape, optical discs and hard drive arrays.

      In March through May of 2014 Coughlin Associates, Inc. conducted a survey of professional media and entertainment professionals on various digital storage topics. The survey was broken down into several segments: content capture, editing and post-production, content delivery as well as archiving and digital preservation. This talk will include data from this survey as well as projections from the 2014 Digital Storage in Media and Entertainment Report covering major uses of digital storage technology in professional media and entertainment.

    • Sony Pictures Entertainment: The Fallout from 2014’s Biggest Breach Sony Pictures Entertainment: The Fallout from 2014’s Biggest Breach Moderator: Stephen Pritchard - Speakers: Amar Singh, Eddie Schwartz & Adrian Davis Recorded: Jan 29 2015 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • From November through to the new year, the headlines were awash with the major cyber-attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment. Details continue to filter through about the scale of the breach. We already know about the vast quantities of personal data leaked (including social security numbers); the theft and dissemination of intellectual property, such as film scripts and actual motion pictures; and, of course, the initial cancellation of the North Korea-lampooning flick, The Interview.

      Dig a little further, though, and how much do we really know about how the attack was perpetrated? Who is to blame? The FBI was quick to point the finger at North Korea, and the US government has even imposed sanctions on the nation in response. Security experts have lined up to dispute the FBI’s claims, but attempts to identify a plausible alternative haven’t generated much traction.

      This webinar looks at the incident’s implications from a security point of view. The panelists will examine where Sony went wrong, how far the blame can be extended to the entertainment giant, the plausibility of the FBI’s claim, and what the wider significance of this political hot potato could be.

    • Digital Storage in Professional Media & Entertainment Digital Storage in Professional Media & Entertainment Tom Coughlin, SSSI member, Coughlin Associates Recorded: Jun 9 2009 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • This talk gives an overview of the growth of digital storage demand and performance for all aspects of the digital media and entertainment (M&E) industry. The implications of ever higher resolution content processed in today’s digital media workflow from content capture, ingest, editing and post production, content delivery as well as archive and preservation will be examined. Some results from a recently completed survey of M&E professionals conducted by Coughlin Associates will be presented to show current status and developing trends in this highly demanding and storage intensive industry. There is a growing trend toward the use of network storage rather than direct attached storage for many performance-oriented M&E applications as the capabilities of storage networks has improved and costs have dropped. The development of the digital storage hierarchy to support these activities has led to the use of many types of storage devices including capacity hard disk drives, performance hard disk drives, optical discs and magnetic tape. In addition to these traditional storage media and systems flash memory has emerged as a strong storage contender, particularly in rugged content capture devices as well as in high performance content delivery systems.
