How Esports Can Combine Old and New Monetization Models to Reach New Heights

Money is pouring into esports. There are more players, more games, more viewers, and bigger prize pools — and companies are taking note. Investment is coming from all angles, and everyone is looking for a piece of the pie. But many of the existing monetization models of esports only seek to follow tried-and-true formats from traditional sports.

There’s a lot for the video game industry to learn from the legacy sports broadcast model, but there’s a catch: The video game industry uses some of the world’s most advanced interactive technology to create some of the world’s most compelling entertainment experiences.

So why would we just do it the same way as before? We probably won’t. Not for long, at least.

Watch this webinar to learn about:

-How the current esports model stacks up against traditional sports, and where the money is coming from now
-New technologies that will change the existing business model
-The difference between formal esports and personalized broadcasting — and what those differences mean for your bottom line

Speakers:

- Jonathan Singer, Industry Strategist, Akamai
- Robb Chiarini, Director Esports, NCSA at Ubisoft
- Dean Takahashi, Lead Writer, GamesBeat
- Kent Wakeford, Co-founder and COO, Gen.G

    Tony Lauro - Director Security Technology & Strategy, Akamai
    Healthcare organizations across the globe have asked their non-essential employees to work from home. But many are unprepared for the sudden surge in remote users. Moreover, the unique needs and use cases within the healthcare industry present very specific security challenges.

    Akamai Enterprise Application Access solution is an edge-based, intelligent, adaptive alternative to legacy access solutions. As a cloud-native service, it is designed to be deployed quickly and scale dynamically, so that you can rapidly provision secure access to mission-critical applications, for remote workers, with a single set of security and access controls.

  • The Technical Implications of CCPA and Other Data Privacy Regulations Recorded: May 5 2020 29 mins
    Sven Dummer - Senior Product Marketing Manager and Elmar Witte - Senior Product Marketing Manager, Akamai
    Similar to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is regarded as one of the toughest and most impactful data protection regulations on the planet. When it goes into effect on January 1, its impact will be global: Compliance is required from any company that stores personal data of residents of California — the world’s fifth-largest economy. The California Department of Justice estimates that businesses in the U.S. alone will spend $55 billion just for initial compliance.

    And companies face more challenges as lawmakers around the world aim to put an end to the Wild West of consumer data collection. Personal data is now being regulated in over 130 countries with more than 500 privacy laws.

    Watch this 30-minute on-demand webinar for a brief overview of the CCPA, who it impacts, and how it compares to other high-profile data privacy regulations like GDPR. We dive into its technical implications and how central identity management can help to achieve multi-jurisdictional compliance.

    You will learn:

    - What systems and practices are needed to scalably comply with CCPA
    - Technical best practices to address common data privacy requirements, CCPA, and beyond
    - How to eliminate data silos that complicate regulatory compliance
    - How granular customer preference and scoped access management can help to achieve compliance and prevent toxic data

    Today’s consumers expect trust and transparency from brands they do business with. According to CMO Council, 57% of brands believe data security, privacy, and accountability are the most critical demands of modern, connected consumers.

  • Shoring up your defenses with Web Application Security Recorded: Jan 28 2020 44 mins
    Karthik Mohan, Technical Account Manager, Akamai
    Most organizations know that they need application security, but not all organizations have the time, money, or experience to maintain the highly sophisticated and customized rules provided by traditional application security tools.

    Organizations today need a product that is simple enough to bring application security to them that might otherwise leave their applications exposed. Akamai’s Web Application Protector solves that problem, by providing an intuitive administrator interface, pre-configured rule groupings, automatic rule updates, and self-serve configuration.

    In this webinar we are going to cover Akamai’s Web Application Protector by demonstrating how easy it is to configure and tune the firewall by looking into analytics that is captured by the platform. We will go look at the use-cases to help you understand if our WAP is the best fit for your business.

  • OnDemand Webinar | Bringing Zero Trust to the Top of the Agenda Recorded: Dec 17 2019 44 mins
    Patrick Sullivan, Senior Director of Global Security Strategy, Akamai
    Not that long ago, many infosec leaders were asking, "What is zero trust and why should I care?" Today, it's more often, "How do I get my business owners to properly support and resource our transition to a zero trust architecture/posture?"

    Media production, marketing and delivery is a complex journey that requires countless teams, partners and individuals to access resources inside the network. Prevailing perimeter-based solutions are complex, costly and most significantly, put the intellectual property of the company at enormous risk.

    Akamai's Patrick Sullivan has been a security engineer, architect and strategist for more than 12 years working with media companies to implement Zero Trust solutions.

    Watch this OnDemand webinar where Sullivan shares hard won insights for media companies on:

    - Key ways that Zero Trust can simplify infosec implementation;
    - Advice on how to assess and audit the security hygiene of key partners;
    - And tips on how to communicate security risk, and the rewards of Zero Trust, to business owners.
  • How Esports Can Combine Old and New Monetization Models to Reach New Heights Recorded: Dec 10 2019 60 mins
    Jonathan Singer, Industry Strategist, Akamai and Dean Takahashi, Lead Writer, GamesBeat
    Money is pouring into esports. There are more players, more games, more viewers, and bigger prize pools — and companies are taking note. Investment is coming from all angles, and everyone is looking for a piece of the pie. But many of the existing monetization models of esports only seek to follow tried-and-true formats from traditional sports.

    There’s a lot for the video game industry to learn from the legacy sports broadcast model, but there’s a catch: The video game industry uses some of the world’s most advanced interactive technology to create some of the world’s most compelling entertainment experiences.

    So why would we just do it the same way as before? We probably won’t. Not for long, at least.

    Watch this webinar to learn about:

    -How the current esports model stacks up against traditional sports, and where the money is coming from now
    -New technologies that will change the existing business model

  • [state of the internet]/security Credential Stuffing: Attacks and Economies Recorded: Dec 3 2019 32 mins
    Patrick Sullivan, Senior Director, Security Technology & Strategy Akamai and Shane Keats, Director of Global Industry Mktg.
    Webinar: Credential stuffing targets media

    January 2019 saw the public release of a massive collection of private credentials — more than 25 billion email address and password combinations. Though much of the user information was from older data breaches, the audacious data dump reflects the reality that the theft, abuse, and sale of username/password combinations is a thriving criminal business.

    Media organizations, gaming companies, and the entertainment industry are among the biggest targets of credential stuffing attacks. The people behind these attacks realize the value of an account, whether it’s to a streaming site, a game, or someone’s social media account. And they’re willing to do whatever it takes to steal them.

    During this webinar, we’ll share the recent research that digs into this trend, which has significant impacts for gaming, video, and entertainment companies.

    You’ll learn:

    - Why cheap tools and free tutorials lower the bar of entry for would-be criminals
    - How malicious actors turn data breaches into substantial profits on darknet markets
    - What businesses can do to detect and prevent credential stuffing attacks
