Signal Sciences Recognized as a Visionary in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls Two Years in a Row
We’re thrilled to announce that Gartner has named Signal Sciences a Visionary in the 2020…
For the last several years, media organizations have been targets of cyber attacks, making application security more important than ever for the this industry. According to a 2018 report by Akamai, SQL injections, DNS attacks, pirated content, and DDoS attacks were the most common cybersecurity incidents experienced by media organizations. The multitude of attacks to which organizations could be vulnerable, combined with the sheer amount of people, applications and devices involved in media production has put organizations in a place where there are more avenues than ever for hackers to infiltrate.
On top of this, the report notes that only 1% of media companies feel “very confident” in their cybersecurity. Juxtapose this with the DevSecOps Community Survey 2018, sponsored in part by Signal Sciences and Sonatype, which found that companies actively engaged in DevSecOps practices feel significantly more prepared than those using more legacy software development practices.
Last month, Turner, Duo, Datadog and Signal Sciences hosted the second annual Media Security Summit–this time in New York, one of the world’s media capitals.
70 industry leaders from over 50 media organizations’ security, cloud and DevOps teams were represented.
The security industry’s collaborative “we’re all in this together” mindset is one of its strongest defenses when it comes to protecting people, data and ultimately, money. With the Media Security Summit, we aimed to foster an environment where professionals would come together to openly share challenges, issues and best practices. Various topics were covered from technical security, to security awareness and culture, to the crossover to physical and journalist security.

Panel: Defending Reporters: A Discussion about Journalist Security in the Field
Our last panel shifted focus to a less technical topic, and participants shared how defending reporters fell under their job as security professionals.
The Summit’s open dialogue shed light on several challenges and triumphs practitioners are facing, and we truly hope all attendees benefited from the sharing of information.
A big thanks to the security professionals that attended and participated in the Major Media Security Summit, sponsored by Signal Sciences, Duo and Datadog, and hosted by Turner. We look forward to next year’s event!
