Fast, intelligent and adaptive, online piracy is a growing threat facing pay media operators and content rights holders globally. But with smarter security, we are putting up a fight. Irdeto recently joined Akamai, the well-known […]
In a connected world, where technology continuously advances, now, more than ever, we need to grasp the importance of taking affirmative steps to protect online intellectual property rights. Intellectual property rights (IPR) infringement are nothing […]
Previously, a common model for IoT devices was to build, ship and forget. This has resulted in a flood of unsecured consumer devices in homes and a challenge in retrofitting security. There is an opportunity in smart home products with strong safety features and Pay TV operators are in a decent position to capitalize on the smart home potential by building on the solid relationship they have with customers.
As a cybersecurity professional and a hobbyist painter, I recently revisited one of my past works, ‘Cyberattack’, and started to think about IoT security and the power of visuals a bit differently…
How many of your online accounts or services require passwords? So many to remember. What’s your personal technique – your children’s names; adding a number each time it needs updating or a password manager?
Irdeto’s Cybersecurity Services team obtained a copy of the largest aggregated database of stolen credentials.
For some, the steady growth of eSports is no surprise. For others, they’re just starting to hear about it. With phrases like: “is eSports the future?”; “eSports industry is booming”, it’s worth looking at why there’s so much hype surrounding it.
Put simply, eSports is competitive or professional gaming. Players battle it out to go up the rankings and win prize money. And that’s big business?
Cable companies, pay TV operators and telcos are often called service providers for the principal reason that they are not selling media and entertainment – they are selling a service. One of the most valuable assets they hold is a direct physical link into people’s homes and an ongoing monthly billing relationship.
From a pure business perspective that means anything a service provider can leverage to boost bandwidth usage and ARPU is fair game.
The media sector is now a top target for cyber criminals and combating these threats is a major focus at IBC. At midday today, the Conference takes aim at the problem, with a sold-out invite-only C-Tech Forum event which places security firmly at the top of executive agendas.
Perhaps the chief take-away is that the threat from piracy is multi-faceted…
A group of U.S. senators recently introduced a new bill (the ‘‘Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2017’’) to address security vulnerabilities in connected devices. While this is a positive step toward improving baseline security for all devices bought and used by the government, it magnifies a much larger issue that is prevalent today in industries that are increasing their product’s connectivity to the Internet. Let me explain…
As discussed in a previous blog, the European Banking Authority (EBA) has released the final draft of its technical guidance for PSD2. Articles 4 and 25 of said guidance include mandates for the security of the customer authentication process.
One of the key elements of the authentication mandate is the requirement to use advanced security technology to safeguard all client-to-server communications against interception. In other words, to protect against MitM (Man-in-the-Middle) attacks.
