    Smart Hacks for Securing Data across All Infrastructures 

    If there is a time to improve the protection of data and content by upping your security game , it's NOW. The high-profile data losses by studios, large retailers, and governments should act as wake-up calls, but do they?

    Join MESS-LA in February to review best practices, MPAA recommendations, and how multi-tenancy architectures (like Clouds) could significantly improve how we all implement security in 2015. 

    THANK YOU HGST and Steven Sattler for your generous sponsorship!
