The FCC has created a federal advisory committee on media security, called the Media Security and Reliability Council.
MSRC's members will study, develop and report on best practices designed to assure the optimal reliability, robustness and security of the broadcast and multichannel video programming distribution industries. The council will comprise about 40 senior representatives of mass media companies, cable television and satellite service providers, trade associations, public safety representatives, manufacturers and other related entities.
The group is modeled after the Network Reliability and Interoperability Council established for the telephone industry in 1992.
Dennis FitzSimons, president/COO of Tribune Company, will chair MSRC's inaugural term.
The designated federal official of MSRC will be Chief of the Video Division, Media Bureau, Barbara Kreisman. Attorney-Advisor in the Policy Division of the Media Bureau, Susan Mort, will serve as Deputy DFO.
