#deepweb | ProSiebenSat.1 Using AWS to Transform the Future of Media in Europe

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE, Europe’s leading satellite and cable broadcaster, operating television channels, digital VoD platforms and e-commerce brands, has selected AWS as its primary cloud provider. ProSiebenSat.1 is working closely with AWS to adopt cloud services within all parts of its broadcast and digital media businesses, production companies, and e-commerce platforms. With AWS, ProSiebenSat.1 is improving the time to market of new applications, and introducing advanced analytics and machine learning (ML) technologies across its organization, which is transforming the viewing experience for 45 million households across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

ProSiebenSat.1 has a long history of working with AWS because of its deep portfolio of cloud services, high levels of security and compliance, rapid pace of innovation, and proven experience in reliably supporting millions of customers around the world. Most of ProSiebenSat.1‘s brands have deployed applications on AWS, including its Joyn streaming platform, offering viewers over 20,000 episodes and 55 live channels in the cloud. ProSiebenSat.1 also runs the commerce businesses of its NuCom Group, a growing e-commerce player with 10 leading portfolio companies, on AWS as well as the production business of its Red Arrow Studios, one of the world’s leading creators and distributors of entertainment content.

Recently, ProSiebenSat.1 made a corporate-wide decision to integrate AWS ML services into every aspect of its business to automate processes and develop new, personalized products. Adopting AWS ML services will enable ProSiebenSat.1 to more intelligently tailor advertising to viewers and enhance personalization and recommendations across all of its media brands. One of its most strategic projects uses Amazon SageMaker, a fully managed service to build, train, and deploy ML models, and AWS data analytics tools to predict the future value of an upcoming advertising slot.

The solution uses a deep neural network —trained and deployed using Amazon SageMaker – to predict ad conversion rates based on inputs such as the slot time, genre of the TV show, and ad content. As a result, the service is able to predict, weeks in advance, how many impressions an advertisement will generate. This allows advertisers to predict who will watch their ads, helping them to make informed purchasing decisions, while simultaneously enhancing the viewer experience with ads that are more closely aligned with consumer preferences.

“ProSiebenSat.1 is a leading European entertainment conglomerate with a strong commerce business and we continue to drive the ongoing transformation of the Group into a technology-and data-led company with an emphasis on growing our digital and diversified future,” said Nick Thexton, Chief Technology Officer of ProSiebenSat.1. “AWS is a key strategic partner who has consistently driven cloud adoption for over a decade and is still setting the pace on what cloud services can do for media businesses. By moving more of our business to AWS and incorporating AWS’s ML services, we are able to enhance our agile software development practices and derive even more value from our large consumer data platforms.”

“Over the past few years, media companies have been using our unmatched portfolio of cloud services to transform the delivery of content and create more personalized viewing experiences to delight audiences on every platform,” said Andy Isherwood, Managing Director, Amazon Web Services EMEA. “As one of the largest and most well-respected media companies in Europe, it is exciting to see ProSiebenSat.1 embracing AWS ML services, and establishing itself as a leader in what is possible. We look forward to supporting the company on its journey to transform how it serves its customers across its media and e-commerce brands.”

International Workshop on Future Information, Security, Privacy and Forensic for Complex Systems (FISP)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 August 13 – 15, 2018 | Gran Canaria, Spain

Cybersecurity Conference Description

Availability, integrity and secrecy of complex information systems are increasingly important requirements for modern society as well as nations as with every passing day computers control and administer more and more aspects of human life. We entrust much of our lives to information and computer technologies (ICT’s). However, it is difficult and challenging task to understand security risk and to provide effective security solution as attackers only need to find a single vulnerability but developers or system administrators need to find and fix all vulnerabilities. In addition, cyber space is considered as fifth battle-field after land, air, water and space.

The aim of FISP-2018 is to provide a premier international platform for wide range of professions including scholars, researchers, academicians and Industry people to discuss and present the most recent challenges and developments in “Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems” from the perspective of providing security awareness and its best practices for the real world. After the high success of the previous edition (FISP’2017) in conjunction with 12th International Conference on Future Networks and Communications 2017 (FNC-2017), Belgium, the fourth International Workshop on Future Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems (FISP-2018) will continue to open to submit novel and high quality research contributions as well as state of the art reviews in the field of information security and privacy. We anticipate that this workshop will open new entrance for further research and technology improvements in this important area.

The #future of #computer #security is #machine vs #machine

A growing number of computer security thinkers, including myself, think that in the very near future, most computer security will be machine versus machine–good bots versus bad bots, completely automated. We are almost there now.

Fortunately or unfortunately, I don’t think we’ll get to a purely automated defense for a long, long time.

Today’s security defenses
Much of our computer security defenses are already completely automated. Our operating systems are more securely configured out of the box, from firmware startup to the operating system running apps in secure hardware-enforced virtual boundaries, than ever before. If left alone in their default state, our operating systems will auto-update themselves to minimize any known vulnerabilities that have been addressed by the OS vendor.

Most operating systems come with rudimentary blacklists of “bad apps” and “bad digital certificates” that they will not run and always-on firewalls with a nice set of “deny-by-default” rules. Each OS either contains a built-in, self-updating, antimalware program or the users or administrators install one as one of the first administrative tasks they perform. When a new malware program is released, most antimalware programs get a signature update within 24 hours.

Most enterprises are running or subscribing to event log message management services (e.

The #Future Of #Company #Cybersecurity? #Pentesting, Says #CyberByte

Source: National Cyber Security News

Companies rank cybersecurity as one of their top priorities – yet, when enquired, their respective departments hard-pressed to identify the core steps that need to be taken in order to maintain it at top levels. CyberByte, the preeminent Romanian cybersecurity firm, has recently published an informative article, wherein it maintains that penetration testing – or pentesting- will define the future of company cybersecurity.

The term pentesting refers to “a series of ethical hacking attacks on IT systems”, which are made with the ultimate goal of uncovering system vulnerabilities and potential cybersecurity issues. In addition to helping calculate the chances of a potential cyberattack succeeding, pentesting provides an overview of the efficacy of a company’s cybersecurity measures that are already in place, with its results acting as a guide for further improvements that need to be made in order to bolster existing cybersecurity strategies.

“Pentests are classified according to the information available for each system. The two most commonly used methods of pentesting, the Penetration Testing Execution Standard or PTES, and the OWASP method, are not particularly innovative. The same applies for the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual, or OSSTMT, which has now become an industry standard – despite the fact that, much like the aforementioned methods, it represents a very primordial approach to a universal cybersecurity structure,” said Mr.

The most #notorious #hacks in #history, and what they mean for the #future of #cybersecurity

Source: National Cyber Security News

Where has the time gone? February is almost over, and already we’ve seen several major vulnerabilities and hacks this year! As we head further into what’s sure to be another busy year for cybersecurity, it’s important to take a step back and examine how we got here.

For nearly four decades, cyber criminals have been exploiting the latest and greatest technology for fun, profit and power. In that time, the word “hacker” has taken on many meanings. At first, it referred to mischievous young techies looking to build a reputation on the internet, but it has since become a worldwide title for data thieves, malicious online “entrepreneurs” and geopolitical operatives. The threats and tactics that hackers use have evolved, too – from small-time scams to dangerous worms and earth-shaking breaches.

As a result, the security industry has been in game of “cyber cat and mouse” for the better part of a half-century, looking to evolve security technology to thwart the constant evolution in malware and techniques used by sophisticated threat actors.

Let’s take a look back at the past four decades to assess the most notorious hacks in each era, why they mattered, and how the security industry responded.
