You are invited to attend the next SBE local chapter 56 meeting on Tuesday, August 23rd at 12 noon at the OETA Tulsa Studios. The program will be Cyber Security in the Broadcast Facilities. Our guest presenter is Dr. Sujeet Shenoi from the University of Tulsa. Lunch will be provided courtesy of TM Television.
The broadcasting industry, like every Internet-connected segment of society, is vulnerable to the rapid proliferation of cyber threats. Today’s broadcast facilities are facing an environment of enhanced formats, evolving platforms, faster processor speeds, and OTT delivery that allows for video to be watched on pretty much any device. TV and radio station broadcasters are almost continually battling breaches, hacks, malware infections and virus infestations of their computers, editing equipment, transmission facilities and other IP-based or connected assets. Media can be produced and delivered by creative artists linked through powerful networks distributed across multiple specialist studio locations. Sophisticated hackers are increasingly targeting the broadcast industry. Broadcasters are used to carrying mission-critical data and information. Broadcasters must assess which parts of their infrastructure are critical to maintaining on-air operations so that they can deliver essential information to the public.
Dr. Shenoi is the F.P. Walter Professor of Computer Science at the University of Tulsa. An active researcher with specialties in cyber security and forensics, Dr. Shenoi is currently the principal investigator on projects supported by the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, FBI, National Security Agency, National Science Foundation, and U.S. Secret Service.
He is the Chair of IFIP Working Group 11.10 on Critical Infrastructure Protection, Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection, and Director of the Cyber Security Education Consortium, an NSF ATE Center that is building a high-tech workforce in the Southwestern United States. He is the Co-Chair of the FBI’s National Steering Committee for the Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory Program.
He is also the founder of the Tulsa Undergraduate Research Challenge, a nationally recognized program of scholarship and service. For his innovative strategies integrating academics, research and service, Dr. Shenoi was named the 1998-1999 U.S. Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation..
We look forward to our discussion on Cyber Security!
