Video Game Executive Named CDSA Chairman9 Jun, 2010 By: Erik Gruenwedel
The Content Delivery & Storage Association has named Spencer Mott, senior executive with video game publisher Electronic Arts, chairman at the group’s recent board and membership meeting in Los Angeles.
Mott, who replaced Frank Russomanno, is joined on the CDSA executive committee by new members Tom Moran, senior director, media and entertainment at Savvis, and Brad Springer, CFO at JVC America.
With 25 years of intellectual property security experience, including five years as operations director for the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT), the U.K.’s motion picture anti-piracy body, Mott will oversee the association’s IP protection, data compliance, risk management services and security operations.
Mott will initially focus the association's efforts on its content protection and security certification program (CPP), which is used by several content holders, including EA, to drive down costs, improve general security, reduce system unpredictability and help optimize supply chains.
An open letter to the membership, outlining Mott’s goals and strategy for CDSA, is available online at www.CDSAonline.org.
