Why it's imperative to assess broadcast security in a world where piracy is prevalent|Digital Studio

Broadcasters need to make ‘big transformational changes now’ if they are to protect themselves from hackers, Scott Borg, director and chief economist of the US Cyber Consequences Unit, told IBC365. Media organisations are easy targets for cyber hackers, Borg explained at the IBC2018 Cyber Security Forum. Borg cited cyber-attacks on Netflix, Sony and TV5Monde as incidents that have compromised content, shut down infrastructures, and risked brands’ reputation. He said, “For smaller organisations, a cyber-attack could potentially compromise and bankrupt the business altogether.”
