Content is now created by a growing ecosystem of third-party vendors, who collaborate with varying degrees of security.

This has escalated the security threat to the entertainment industry’s most prized asset, it’s content.

CDSA’s Application & Cloud Assessment Program is a new, global, industry-wide film and television content protection initiative, that is aligned with the global M&E industry’s Trusted Partner Network, specifically designed for remote, virtual or software defined workflows. This program helps companies prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of their customers’ movies and television shows prior to their intended release and seeks to raise security awareness, preparedness, and capabilities within our industry.

 

CDSA’s control framework establishes a single benchmark of minimum security preparedness for all vendors and their teams, wherever they work, and whatever their specialty. By creating a single, global directory of “trusted partner” vendors, content companies will have access to a centralized database to learn their assessment status. CDSA’s App & Cloud Assessment Program, in cooperation with a site-security assessment, the Guardians community, and ME-ISAC, seek to raise security awareness, preparedness, and capabilities within our industry.
