In fact, a host of radio stations in Arkansas, Virginia and elsewhere have recently suffered “ransomware” attacks that locked up their data servers and music files. Don’t be next. As the primary outlet for Americans’ access to news, emergency updates and live entertainment and sports, it is critical that broadcasters diligently protect their operations from digital intrusions.

Radio and television stations must increase their awareness of hacking, spoofing and other cyber breaches that could disrupt programming and advertising, undermine the Emergency Alert System (EAS), or even compromise your employees’ privacy.

This webcast will provide up-to-date guidance on government and industry initiatives concerning cybersecurity and discuss recommendations for reducing your operation’s cyber risks.
