TPN Will Join Sony Pictures, NBC Universal and Iyuno-SDI at Sunday, April 24 Session
WHAT: The Trusted Partner Network and its newly expanding content security initiative will be the subject of a special panel discussion at NAB Show 2022 in Las Vegas. TPN President Terri Davies will join technology and security experts from Sony Pictures, NBC Universal and Iyuno-SDI in reviewing TPN’s just-announced plans for embracing cloud security and a new and flexible self-attestation program. The discussion – “The Future of Content Security: What’s Next for the Trusted Partner Network (TPN)” – will reveal why a common solution for content security is essential in a world where workflows are growing more complex and content creation is an ever-expanding industry.
“Security threats are growing more insidious and sophisticated even as work in the cloud becomes the new norm,” said Davies. “TPN’s expanded program will embrace all the ways work gets done in our industry today while growing capacity, providing a clear, inclusive framework for service providers to meet security benchmarks and for content owners to make more informed independent vendor selections from a more accessible and centralized source.”
WHEN: The panel is scheduled for Sunday, April 24, 3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. PDT.
