Following Smith, our sponsor, IBM Global Media and Entertainment Marketing Director Rich Michos, will provide introductory remarks to our keynote.
The opening keynote features a discussion with McAfee Chief Consumer Security Evangelist Gary Davis and DraftKings Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer Paul Liberman, moderated by Kevin Collier, cybersecurity correspondent at BuzzFeed News.
Viewers and radio listeners connect 24/7 to sports, entertainment, daily fantasy sports platform, shopping, and on-air talent. Even local on-air news talent are now online celebrities. Yet, all this "connectivity" has an impact on privacy. Any business, station or personality can become a potential victim. Protection is essential for physical plant security and to avoid costly situations resulting from occasions of fraud, theft of intellectual property, "ransomware" attacks, fake news, scams, and even hacking of government emergency warning systems.
Protecting safety and privacy is a daily priority for these two executives. As the founder of DraftKings, the sports-tech entertainment platform and industry leader which continuously optimizes their protections to ensure they are operating in the best interest of their customers and community while working with lawmakers to ensure the Daily Fantasy Sports industry is regulated in all of their markets. As the chief security officer for one of the best-known, leading brands for ensuring online privacy and safety. During this discussion, Davis and Liberman will share their perspectives on protecting the privacy of your company or station, and learn how these insights apply to you.
