Special Fortium Cybersecurity Panel To Be Presented At Sound for Film and TV Conference

Their file encryption product, MediaSeal, protects all file types in Windows and Mac and can be used for all b2b workflows.

On Saturday, September 16th, 2017, Fortium’s US Business Development head, Adam Krentzman, will discuss the latest solutions and strategies for cybersecurity in post-production during a special Master Class at “Mix Presents Sound for Film and TV.”  This special event will take place at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California.

A recent spate of high profile hacks has focused attention on cybersecurity in the media and entertainment industry. The problem is particularly acute in post-production, where sensitive content is shared among an increasing number of studio staff and third-party service providers. Ensuring that content doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, either through internal error or criminal act, is of paramount importance.  In his Master Class,”Cybersecurity in Post-Production: How to Defeat the Hackers,” Krentzman will discuss the devastating consequences that security breaches can have for the companies and people involved. He will also offer practical advice on how companies can keep content safe from theft or accidental distribution both internally and when interacting with outside parties.

“We are in a new era and have to think differently about security, the old paradigm no longer works,”  Krentzman says. “Cyber criminals are clever and they are relentless in seeking soft targets. Companies need to be smart and act vigilantly to avoid becoming victims.”

Krentzman has been an entertainment industry executive for nearly 30 years and previously served as a motion picture packaging agent at CAA. At CAA, he represented directors and producers including Michael Bay, Michael Mann, Antoine Fuqua, Jerry Bruckheimer and Bill Condon, and more than 50 studio films, including Bad Boys, Casino, Good Fellas, Training Day and Hellraiser.

Mix Presents Sound for Film and TV is an all-day exhibition and conference spotlighting the technologies and techniques behind sound for picture, from production to playback.  In addition to the Cybersecurity panel being presented during the Mix event, Fortium will will be showcasing its security products at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam.
