What Would Happen if CBS Got Hacked? [ML BSide]

Media companies probably get hacked no more than other, non-media oriented organizations such as hospitals, banks, etc. But these hacks are often more visible and more memorable because… well, media companies are more public facing by their very nature. How can these organizations be hacked, and why should we care about such attacks? Nate Nelson spoke with Joel Molinoff, former chief information risk officer for CBS Corporation, and Dan Vasile, former vice president of information security at Paramount.
